5 String Frying Pan Banjo with Hub Cap Resonator

5 String Frying Pan Banjo with Hub Cap Resonator

This 5 string "panjo" has a frying pan body, a hub cap resonator, a maple neck with cherry fingerboard and mother of pearl inlays. It's just a little bit bigger than a concert scale ukulele. It's the first time I've ever built one, and I think it has a really good sound. I'll definitely be building more in the future. (Especially now that I've got all the complicated parts, like attaching a resonator, figured out)
