Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

A friend of mine has consigned for sale a Wunderlich replica banjo to Zepp Country Music. This banjo is a replica of a banjo assembled by a Confederate soldier who had been incarcerated in a Maryland prisoner-of-war camp. The original is owned by a family in North Carolina: 8" rim made by William R. Boucher, Jr.; neck made by the Confederate soldier; skin head and gut strings; painted rosewood graining; square peg head; red stretcher band and four hooks.

I've played the replica -- nice banjo and sounds great. One-of-a-kind replica of a one-of-a-kind banjo.

Here's the link with photos:
