« Part 7: Installed Hardware and Head Part 8 of Banjo series no next part

It’s finished!

Not much to say really. I had fun and now I have a banjo to try and learn to play! Ha ha

Here is a link to the finished project and here is a video of how it sounds.

I didn’t blog a whole lot on the build but I think most will get the idea, it’s definately NOT a how to blog!

Thanks for watching!

Hey, thanks to everyone for the compliments!

I am pretty happy with how it turned out. There are things that I know now that I would have done differently, but not much. I might have tried to make it a little fancier. I can always build another one later, right? Now I just need to be patient and learn to play.

Thanks again!
