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!

Thanks Derek. I was pretty happy with this one.

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.
