GUEST,truckerdave Who made my Banjo (45) RE: Who made my Banjo 01 Jan 02

Sounds like you just described the "Rogue" brand banjo i bought last year from Musicians Friend. I saw another identical banjo at a music store with the "Irma" name on the headstock or something that sounded like that. Also saw pictures of another brand that looked the same. Mine had a little peel off sticker that said "made in korea". They are made at the Samick factory there. Fender sells a similar looking banjo that i believe is made in the Samick factory also. The one i have is quite a good sounding and playing instrument. Certainly worth the $200 i paid for it. It has a wooden rim, some have aluminum one piece rims. I didn't see any difference in any of them except for the name on the headstock.
