Picked up this banjo stamped Warren on the dowel stick. Has shoes and tension hoop unlike any I have seen. Sure someone here would know who made this banjo. I have seen the tailpiece called a Fenton, but don't know if that is correct. Thanks!

Thought I had loaded the pictures with this, but it's seems not. Will try to figure it out. Sorry!

Photos are on my member page, don't know how to get them here. Sometimes it's not good to be a luddite.

It appears to be a Buckbee product. The nuts, shoes and tension hoop all show up on various Buckbee banjos.

I thought Windsor because of the stampings on the headstock.

There are actually two different banjos on his page one a Windsor the other appears to be a possible buckbee. The style of tension hoop was used on some Geo Dobson Victor models, which were made by Buckbee.

Different banjo. The one he's asking about is his three most recent photos.
