Wasn't sure if I should post this here, or in the Banjo Hangout Collector's forum.
I just got a banjo mandolin with elaborate inlay on the fretboard. I am assuming the inlay is not original, since the peghead inlay seems simpler. The instrument does not have any maker's marks. It does have what seems to be an Orpheum tone ring. My question is, is the shape of the tailpiece a clue as to the maker?
I'm assuming the instrument is from the teens or 20s...
