The popularity of the four string banjo led many of the manufacturers
to create lines of banjos for amateurs to professionals with
everything in between. Some companies like Bacon & Day and Vega
would number their models to indicate the quality of the banjos.
companies like Epiphone and Paramount would use
letters to show their more advanced models.
The Banjo Gallery is a project to
attempt to catalogue the different models of banjos made by both
past and current banjo manufacturers.
