Old Vintage 8 String Banjo/Mandolin

Unknown maker. (any help identifying would be appreciated)

Overall length is 23½''.

Diameter is 10¾'' x 2⅜'' thick.

Instrument weight w/o skinhead is exactly 4 lbs.

Skin was broken most of the way around so I removed it to expose the inside of the head. Will need new head skin.

There is NOT a wood dowel passing through the head. There is a screw that connects to the neck. Photo of the screw is included shots I made.

Tuning knobs are all intact and working.

Missing one of the 8 strings.

Neck is secure and does not wiggle.

Inlays are all intact with no damage.

Metal needs polishing. Some minor surface pitting in the metal. I used a Q-Tip with nothing on it and the metal cleaned up to a shine. Look at the metal area at 12 o’clock to about 2 o’clock from the neck.

Sold back has checking in one area of the top veneer. See photo.

Also some checking on edge of head at 5 o’clock. See photo.

No case is included but I have 2 banjo/mandolin cases for sale on eBay along with some banjo parts.

Came from an estate auction.

Sold in As Is As Found As Stated Condition.

I have no musical background at all other than singing in the shower.  I will be glad to try and answer any questions you have.  Please use layman terms. Also let me know if you need any other photos taken.

PHOTOs are of actual item unless noted.
