Perfect fit for my 1920’s Banjolele. This was the nearest fit aesthetically we could find, but as the bottom nuts are not visible below the decorative washer and there’s a resonator on the back, who cares. This instrument is for playing and to get someone enthusiastic in exploring Banjo’s and Uke’s further! Good quality, good fit!

They fit, and I can't tell which are the new ones. What more do you need? Oh, and nice price.
