Hi folks, long time no see.....

What do you all think we have here? Homemade? German made maybe?

I haven't the froggiest notion.
Looks nice, though.

Framus pot with custom neck?

That was my first thought but I can't figure out the holes in the back. All Framus banjos I have seen were top tension. There would be no reason to tighten them from the bottom.

Yeah nothing about those holes makes sense. Better photos would help. The tension hoop looks like it might not be Framus. Those photos are too grainy.

Obviously Viking. There is more than one way to kill a banjo critic than just strumming on the strings. banjered

Definitely not Framus.

The tension hoop looks like Framus but is not, the bolts are too big and so is the part of the tension hoop holding it. I'd say it's "homemade".

Homemade was my thought too. Wasn't sure but I thought I had seen a peghead like that somewhere along the line but couldn't think where and figured the group here would maybe recognize it if it were something. It isn't my banjo, a friend asked me about it so i don't have other photos.
