FIRST OFF LET ME TELL YOU I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS SO IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS PLEASE BE PATIENT AND I WILL TRY TO ANSWER THEM TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY. I TRIED TO DO SOME RESEARCH ON THIS AND I THINK IT IS A TYPE 3 OR 5 TENOR BANJO FROM THE 1920'S. EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE ORIGINAL EXCEPT THE COVER WHICH WAS RECENTLY REPLACED. THE LENGTH OF THE NECK IS 22 1/4 INCHES AND TOTAL LENGTH OF THE BANJO IS 35 INCHES.
THE ONLY ISSUE I SEE THAT COULD BE A PROBLEM IS IN PICTURE 7 WHERE THE STRING LAYS ITS KIND OF WORN OUT, EVERYTHING ELSE APPEARS TO BE SOLID.
