Hi Richey

The original chair leg wood width was 2.5 inches. The bridge is a 1/2 inch banjo bridge with standard spacing. The scale length is 19.75 inches.  It does not have a truss rod.

Thanks!

Hi Marvin, I was admiring your banjo build and had a few questions:

How wide was the wood you used for the neck blank?

What string spacing did you use at the bridge?

What's the scale length (to my eye it looks shorter than a typical banjo)

Did you use a truss rod in the neck?

Cheers!

Cigar Box Banjo #9

Just finished CBB#9. The maple came from arms off a discarded recliner, and the walnut from a discarded awards wall plaque. The fretboard was made from ziricote from eBay.
