Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Well, here she is! I wanted to get a shot of me putting on the nut and tying on the strings but I got giddy and my wife wasn't nearby to shoot em. So, my Bell and Son banjo kit is now a banjo.

Looks great Matt. Love the color, especially the formula. The wound 4th Nylgut will want to start to unravel (on both ends) soon. Put a drop of Superglue on the very tip of each end of that string and it'll be ok. Great job.
