Subject: Who made my Banjo
Can anyone identify my new banjo that I picked up at a local flea market, name, maker, and aprox cost new. Resonator 5 string banjo no name or maker anywhere. Appear so be relatively new, and has the look as tho made in Japan, Korea, China??? On the headstock is a Pearl looking inlay in the shape of a maple leaf. On the neck are six sided pearl looking inlays at the 3rd. 5th,7th 10th, 12,15,and 17th fret. White strips on the sides of the neck. The side of the neck there are black dots on the white strip at the same frets. White strips at the top and bottom of the sides of the resonator. A green piece of felt between the bottom of the neck and the resonator. Truss rod in the neck. Tuning machines also have pearl plastic buttons? Bridge is made by Grover w/ black and white inlays for strings. Thanx for any help Allan
