    Default Mystery Banjo Mandolin - Help with identification please!

    Hi Folks,

    Recently prechased an old banjo mandolin, ive played madolin for several years and always fancied a banjo one. As they seemed quite expensive i looked for one that was need some TLC and came across this.

    Would love to find out what type it is in the hope of restoring it back to its former glory, although fighting the temptation to order any old parts just to get it playable.

    Thanks for looking!

    European, c.1910-20 or so. I would hazard to guess that it's either German, Italian, or French based on the tuners.

    Thanks for the quick response

    Someone suggested it was made by Jetel, does this sound familiar?
