It has the same logo as the Italian Westone guitars. Probably is Italian from 1970's.
Voila.

I have to say that the Unknown Number 4 Model looks like a hideous, spiteful piece of merde! And I could punch the guy playing it all day long without getting tired.

And the guy playing it looks nice and friendly.

I would start by polishing the frets with fine steel wool and then cleaning the finger board with lemon oil. Any music shop should be able to do you a set of strings, or even buy them on Ebay.

Hope this helps

Looks like this is a banjo/guitar, not a banjo. Takes six strings, has a guitar neck.

Just reminded me of an old joke:
What's the difference between an onion and a banjo?

Nobody cries when you chop up a banjo.

I believe, if memory serves me right, that Westbone's wife (Mrs Westbone) plays the Banjo too!
