My uncle Pete Fairbanks gave me this instrument years ago and I've never done anything with it other than hang it on the wall. Seems it's difficult finding a set of strings or a tailpiece for this. It appears to be homemade. As I was dusting, I thought it appropriate to post what pictures I have in the hope that internet visitors could help fill in some of the blanks about this vintage piece. If you can shed any history on the Seven String Banjo shown here, please click the email link at the bottom of the page to tell me about it. I will post any relevations I receive here in the future.
