The Fender rep that I emailed couldn't figure it out. Instead of normal, stretched 'skin' top, it's a solid wood soundboard. There's no tone ring in the traditional sense, just a hollow circle, coated black on it's inside edge. The truss appears to run the entire length of the instrument. It's 19.5" from saddle to nut in scale. Other than headstock, there are only two stickers on it's obverse: Make in Korea and Type B

Post pictures directly to the forum page and you will get plenty of comments from the banjo brain trust here on Banjo Hangout.

It's a Fender rebadged version of this one which is rebadged in the UK by Ozark.

I've only seen this rebadged by Ozark.

I remember when these came out. It was supposed to be a travel banjo that was light weight, compact, and more durable than a banjo with a skin head. I thought it was a pretty good concept but, evidently, not many people shared my opinion because they weren't produced very long. To many people a banjo just isn't a banjo unless it has a head on it.
