EARLY A.C. FAIRBANKS ELECTRIC. CIRCA 1892. 11 & 1/2 INCH POT. 26 & 1/2 INCH SCALE.
WHEN I FOUND THIS IT HAD BEEN FITTED WITH STEEL STRINGS, GEARED UKE TUNERS AND A RESONATOR.
AFTER DISCUSSING IT WITH JIM BOLLMAN I HAD THE BANJO RESTORED BY MY FRIEND AND TOP UK BANJO LUTHIER DAVE STACEY
THE TUNER HOLES WERE PLUGGED AND REAMED TO ACCEPT A SET OF CORRECT PERIOD FRICTION TUNERS. PEGHEAD OVERLAY HAS BEEN REPLACED. RE FRET WITH NARROW GAUGE FRETBOARD WIRE. THE FINISH HAS BEEN RE TOUCHED TO COVER THE REPAIRS. NEW CALF SKIN HEAD. REPRO TAILPIECE. APART FROM 2 BRACKET BOLTS IT RETAINS IT'S ORIGINAL HARDWARE. NECK HAS AN EASILY REMOVED 2MM SHIM. THE BANJO IS EQUIPPED WITH NYLON STRINGS AND 15/32 MAPLE BRIDGE.
THERE IS NO CASE BUT I CAN FIND ONE GOOD FOR SHIPPING PURPOSES ONLY.
I HAVE MORE PHOTOS IF REQUIRED.
