I just wanted to show off this 1905 A.C. Fairbanks Regent banjorine w/ Consalvi inlays lovingly restored by Smakula Fretted Instruments.

Wow! I wish modern builders would make more like that. I guess the time involved to make one doesn't pan out price wise for them. Good catch there! banjered

The engraving is almost treasury bill quality. Almost 3d. If the rest of the instrument is of similar quality - very nice indeed.

I have a similar Regent with Consalvi engraving that Andy restored. He does amazing work. Congrats on the functional work of art that you possess!
