Named for the card game "All Fours," a very popular trump game and favorite of George Devol.
This is a composite banjo made from an old Bob Flesher kit rim that Terry Bell expertly built and fitted a neck to.
The Flesher kit was my first "early style" banjo. I put it together with less of the little knowledge that I have now.
It was trying to be a Boucher, but failed. When I got "Harriet" from George Wunderlich, the kit banjo went into a case and stayed.
Thinking I'd sell it, but not wanting to stick anybody with it, I sent Terry a wire asking for a neck.
We corresponded back and forth about details, measurements and I sent him some photos of originals that I liked. Then I sent him the rim.
Just before the Early Banjo Gathering, I received this-- a perfect neck. Ebony pegs, hard as a rock cherry, and a perfect fit to my hand.
I used it to play in the concert.
