Paul Hawthorne's Web Site

Banjo Links

This page is incredibly out of date because I haven't touched it in a very long time. I know that many of the links below are broken but I haven't had the time to go through all of them and post notes.


I may reorganize the page to put bad links together so that my editor's notes don't make so much clutter, which should make the page easier to read.


Want to help?


If you have any information about any of these links please let me know.

Here are some quality banjos and banjo sources from manufacturers, collectors and luthiers. These are good for dreaming. I choose no favorites, although if you know of an old Gibson checkerboard style 6 or Paramount Imperial at a garage sale, you could just get it and send it to me.

I've added editor's notes with links that no longer work. I have left the descriptions without links in place because the point of the page is that Paul felt these were important.

Sites with good info and parts, plans, and techniques for building and maintenance of banjos. See also Scott Zimmerman's Banjo FAQs.

Some great banjo and banjo related sites, not in any particular order. They are all worth checking.

And some links with little direct banjo connection at all. In grouplettes.

Please report broken links or other errors. Thanks.
