Enjoy my 1964 Beatles Banjo. Because when you think of the Fab Four, “Banjo” immediately springs to mind. Right? GroovyShelly

    Exceeeeeeedingly jealous!!!!

    I take it those are original strings?

    Is it made of plastic like a toy or is it a real banjo?

    Where did you get it?

    Yes, they are plastic strings. It’s a toy – but that said, it made an impressive twang in its day.

    My Daddy gave it to me. A huge display of love as it’s safe to say the Fab Four were not his musical cup of tea. I have treasured it since the day he brought it home.

    Great Post!!!.. I love it…and I’ll think of the Fab Four from now on when I see a banjo…:)

    My Mother once called to tell me she was throwing this out. I was in college at the time. I literally wept and she ran downstairs, plucked it from the trash, called and profusely apologized.

    I’m thinking a lot of Beatles collectors would go nuts over this item. I’ve never seen one before. Pretty cool.
