Thread Name: Who made my Banjo
Subject: RE: Who made my Banjo
Bee-dubya-ell: thank you for th eexplanation, at least now I know about the "BELL'S" sign :)
Bob: the neck does not look like a Strat conversion; there are no holes in the headstock (not even plugged ones) plus the whole thing is considerably smaller than a standard Fender Strat or Jaguar (or even Mustang) headstock.
I examined the thing further and I have realized that the front of the headstock is painted solid black, but the back of it as well as the bask of the whole neck and the "drum"like thing are translucent dark green. (by "drum-like" I mean the "body" - sorry for my terrible non-banjo vocabulary, I am a bass/guitar player... YET! :)
I did not find any signature or serial number or anything similar.
