Tenor 4 String Banjo with Steel Resonator and Armrest Project

This is an odd one for sure.

I would call this a tenor banjo but the frets are double spaced (spaced twice as far apart than they should be) (whole steps?)

overall length is 32 inches
the resonator diameter is 10 inches.

I don't know if it is for playing a foreign type of music or what, but I have more than a few of these that I got from a distributor that was going out of business, so they were definitely made for a purpose.

The great part is that the resonator is thick steel and it sounds very loud and very good. this alone is worth the price of admission.

The armrest is also very unique. a nice little bonus piece.

it looks like it is whole steps instead of half. So I suppose you could just cut in some fret slots and fret this thing properly. but I haven't tried that myself, so I don't know how that would work or if you would have to refret the whole thing.

For the price, you can't go wrong.

from nut to first fret , then distance between each fret, in inches 2 7/16 1 31/32 1 25/32 1 9/16 1 17/32 1 5/16 1 1/4 1 1/16 61/64 59/64 13/16
fingerboard is 19" long
scale length should be about 20.625" I think , in order to make this work adding a fret in between these frets, using a fret calc in other words, if you place the bridge, at somewhere between 20.5 and 20.625 inches from the nut, then you should have a wholetone scale (every fret is a whole step), then if you want to cut in your own frets in between these ising a fret calculator to tell youthe measurements, then you should have a banjo that plays a normal western scale. This is just a theory,I haven't tried it. allI know that the 6th fret (which would be the 12th) playse the octave when the bridge is about 20 and a half inches or so away from the nut.
the cleanest way to do this would to be to re-fret the whole thing and then you can use your own scale length (I recommend somewhere between 19" and 23")
why would you go to this trouble? because this banjo sounds very unique and cool. it resonates loudly and uniquely. I don't think you can get this tone from another banjo on the market.
