Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Check this one out... 4-string minstrel banjo!  The frame is from 1865, but no idea when the photo is from.

I blew it up and counted five strings - I think the other peg is just off the picture.

I'm seeing 4 long strings and a short string as well.

I believe you guys... I don't think my screen resolution is enough to make it out though!

That's cool that it's from up in Hagerstown, close to home for me and I think that's where James got his big tambourine.

Definitely 5 strings.  These new 27" retina iMacs are great!

Looks like 5 to me as well.  Great photo.
