Hey guys Check this out, It's a 1920's Red Top Grease Can Banjo

Look at the details on this really cool instrument, this is homemade twang!

There is even grafite pencil marks to mark out the frets on the neck, the builder even had to modify the markings afterwards.

This is so cool, this is a great piece of history! If you would like to learn more about antique homemade instruments made from tin can and cigar boxes...visit the website https://reddogguitars.com


Did you like how I did that Red alert about a Red can banjo and then I said to visit the Red dog website?

Does that make me a wordsmith????...Ok I promise I won't share my comedy career with you guys...I'll slink away now.....Ha Ha! 


Check out these details on this awesome find!

Thanks, There is even more stuff at the website,

https://www.homemade-guitars.com

Not all will fit on one site , so it is split up...Homemade guitars .com has more history and photos.

Awesome archival instrument. Thanks for the link. I had forgotten about this website. A lot of vintage gits and photos. Good photo material for the sales booth when explaining the history of cbg building.
