Real nice Steve, but pardon my ignorance.  What does half shaved tack head fretlees banjo mean?  Loved the tune and the rendition, though.  Great sounding instrument.--Rob

That looks like a longish scale- just curious- what's the scale on that banjer Steve, to the middle of the head?

Comment by Steve Jeter on March 27, 2013 at 12:38pm

25 3/16  nut to bridge, seems to sound best there.

Oh, so it's not as long a scale as I thought.  Thanks!

Again- i love how you played this....sounds wonderful.

That sounded sweet, man I could picture some holler up in the mountains, with a few shanty's stron about and hearing that music drifting across the holler. Just like out of some movie. Nice Steve!

Great tune!  Real fun to listen to and looks fun to play as well.
