price of an older banjo?
my uncle gave to me when i was 1 year old a banjo, im not a very musical person and ive barely even looked at it, but i have no use for it and was planning to sell it.
the brand name is cortez, and a sticker on it sayes "Made in Korea" but the lower part is stamped with a made in USA logo ( the drum? ), so im a bit confused.
the logo sayes "Remo weather king banjo head only, Made in the USA"
the banjo is made of a dark wood, and on the back there is what appears to be an american eagle with somesort of flag
any info would be good, also it is 18 years ago now that my uncle purchased it.
the banjo is Korean
it was an inexpensive beginner's model,
18 years old, does not make it vintage
the "head" was replaced at one time, with an "American made" Remo head
if it's a 5 string, everything is there, the neck is straight, etc
it's probably worth $60-100
can't tell you anymore, without seeing it
There should be a model number besides the name Cortez. You could check ebay and see what that model has been selling for. There are also some online music stores you could contact. Elderly Instruments might give you a rough estimate.

About this book
In the 1960s rock ‘n’ roll music began crossing the Atlantic Ocean—with The Beatles and The Who leading the British Invasion of the United States—and the Pacific Ocean, as American and European rock slowly began to take hold in Japan. This insightful study from visionary rock musician Julian Cope explores what really happened when Western music met Eastern shores. The clash between traditional Japanese values and the wild renegades of 1960s and 1970s rock ‘n’ roll is examined, and the seminal artists in Japanese post-World War II culture are all covered. From itinerate art-house poets to violent refusenik bands with penchants for plane hijacking, this is the story of the Japanese youths and musicians who simultaneously revolutionized a musical genre and the culture of a nation.
