Thanks Shane. With all your excellent builds I'm pretty sure you could manage a 4 string banjo!

Not a lot to say Jim . Apart from Champion as always . 

I wish someone would make me a 4 string banjo .

Thanks RTZ. I gotta make another one for myself since this one sold already!

don't think a paint lid could sound much better

Thanks AGP. That's what we do 'round here isn't it? Trash into treasure, and junk into gems!

Sounds is amazing, Jim. Clean look too.

Thanks Dave L. Plus the paint lid is a lot cheaper than calf skin and PETA approves!

Thanks Erasmo. This tune is June Apple which is a lesser known standard and does have some similarities to Old Joe Clark. The banjo has a 26 1/2" scale which is fairly common for banjos but the pot is only about 10" diam. so the neck does look pretty long.
