    Congrats! Old banjoukes are very cool. They have a tone that can't be mimicked by new ones.
    There are two banjouke groups here you might enjoy.

    I have some photos of someone else's work, but they don't show enough detail. The fifth string just hangs outside the fretboard and isn't fretted, because it's picked as a drone.

    Steve,
    I've been exploring the mini banjo, and I really don't have the jingle to spend on one. What do you know about converting a banjouke to a mini banjo?
    Thanks

    Pete,
    Hi, and welcome!
    I totally get what you mean. I do treat my banjouke as a separate instrument, because I play it in songs that to me, require that sound.

    Thanks to all who helpfully chimed in here.
