From Pete's Web: "LIBERTY BANJO with Scroll Pegbox" 4 String Banjo patterned after detail from "Liberty Displaying the Arts and Sciences" (1792) Based on several early images of the banjo unearthed by Pete Ross including one on a sheet music cover from "Coal Black Rose" ca. 1828. These images show a banjo with a similar form to the banjo in "Liberty..." but with a carved peghead.
