Been off forums for quite some time due to concentrating on restoring a few vintage banjo wrecks I have picked up. Two completed and two more being worked on.

I've also picked up a couple of vintage ukulele banjo's recently and been working on them to get them back into playing condition.

George Formby ukulele banjo. Two tuners missing so replaced the tuners, fitted a bridge and strings....working great:


Jedson ukulele banjo. Stripped down and cleaned up. Refitted the vellum, and now ready for strings and a new bridge:

Love that ukulele banjo! The Formby is great, too.

Thanks, yes they are cool instruments.The Jedson (Keech style) is an interesting construction.
