1920s Weymann Style 50 Banjolin

Repair/Restore to customers satisfacaction

Tiny crack in resonator sidewall
What I see initially, is the need to  get the plane of the fingerboard corrected.
That means fret removal/planing the board.
The extension dips down but does not touch the head. No one plays down there today, on banjo mandolin but this one was played to the end of the board in its day, quite impressive.

Step one
Rim work, preparing to clean/wax
Frets dressed, board oiled
Compensated bridge, no inserts for a warmer tone.
Fretting to extension
Step two, complete
Vintage Bell Brand tailpiece, leands dignity.
Pulling frets
That "Diving board" is coming off. No one plays there anyway.
My choice for Banjolin's
 Thanks for looking and sharing, VM
