weaponepsilon Posted September 10, 2005 Report Share Posted September 10, 2005 Okay, I'll open this one up to you guys. I work with this guy who asks me if I do stringed instrument work. Naturally, I say yes and hand him my card. He starts asking me about violins and how he has one and wants to give it to me. Okay, so now I can get my feet wet on working on violas and such. He brings me not a violin, but a tiny banjo, no bigger than a ukulele. I'm at a loss for words to describe this instrument. Its says Slingerland Maybell on it. I did some research on the net and came up with hits for a 1920's concept called a Banjo Ukulele or Banjulele (??) Right, so the thing is in pretty good condition except 1) its dirty, and 2) the skin head is broken. The budding luthier inside me says to fix it up and rock out (if thats possible on a banjo) but the collector in me tells me to do nothing and sell it as is. Any thoughts here guys?
