Starting a 5 string electric banjo

Hello gang,just started working on an electric 5 string banjo and will share pics and info. Have an old magazine from Weekend Woodcrafts issue 19 Feb 1995 which is my guide as well as other plans saved from the web over many years. Cut the pieces rough at this point and planning on doing without the typical 5th string tuning peg location and designing the drum for ergonomic comfort. It will be my quiet practice banjo to play without annoying my wife on the couch. stay tuned for info.See More
