Sheltone
This model of Banjolele was branded and sold by just about every distributor of the time; and sometimes it wasn't even branded! The one I have invited was branded and sold by Fletcher, Coppock and Newman as a Sheltone. Now I have been looking for a nice example of this particular model, just because it's so Ubiquitous, but ideally it would have the Shelltone branding, partly because this is the same as Brian May's (and he is supposed to have used it on some of Queen's recordings), but mainly because as part of the branding FCN invented a special import and distribution company called A.L. Schitnasty & Co. Clearly this was meant to be a comment on their view of the Banjolele but also its meant to be a joke; and I think a good one. I don't expect it to be the greatest player but I do hope its not that Nasty and Schit.
