If it's not a guitar or a bass guitar discussion, and it's got strings, put it here.

Pete Seeger Long neck banjo...

Post by Tom Owen »

So pretty straight forward. A 32" scale banjo. The rim is one I bought many years ago and never used. The neck (I made) is Sapele. Very cool to be able to play in open E :D

I’ve always appreciated that quote on his banjo heads. Anything special about the rim? Where did you get it?

Nothing special, it was a one off from Stew Mac maybe 10-12 years ago. It is a multi lam rim and only 5/8 thick, which I like for an open back. Also just a simple brass tone ring. When I bought it (I think about $30) I had no idea what I was going to use it for, but couldn't pass up the deal. The quote actually started with Woody Guthrie in the WW II era he wrote on his guitar that "this machine kills fascists" By the way it was his birthday 5 days ago. :)
