when it was a 5 string

This one of three banjos that Clarke Buehling made for Mike Seeger. This one was damaged in shipment, and Mike sent it back. Clarke shaved the neck and made a 4-string out of it., and reshaped the peghead into an early shape that he had seen somewhere. Clarke still has this banjo.
