: Thanks for posting that. It's very cool. Dave's banjo sure looks like a Universal
: Favorite No. 3. I guess we don't see that model too much because it cost twice as
: much as the Universal Favorite No. 1.
: I wonder how the neck on Dave's held up. The old Stewarts were made to be played
: with gut strings, which have considerably less tension than steel strings. In those
: days before steel-reinforced necks, a neck was only as strong as the particular
: piece of wood used to make it. A lot of Stewarts have been damaged or ruined by the
: extra tension of steel strings. Hopefully, Dave's was one of the strong ones.
