Hi All,

A neighbour was given this old banjolele (it belonged to the woman's grandfather, and it seems quite old), and we'd like to see if it can be restored.

I'm wondering if anyone is able to identify the manufacturer and when it was built.

Any information anyone could provide would be appreciated.

Well, first off it's a banjo-mandolin, or banjolin. 8 steel strings. The peghead shape is similar to some British made banjolins I've seen on eBay. The tailpiece is not original.
