Banjo Restoration

I did this project for fun when I found a family member with an old banjo hanging on their wall. The bridge was missing, the hardware was rusty, and the head was busted. I learned a lot about banjo construction and was able to buy all of the replacement parts I needed on Amazon.com. I cleaned the hardware with a wire wheel and applied a light coating of oil. Tuning the head was the hardest part.
