SOURCE: My celebrity deluxe was damaged

Yes, a competent Luthier should be able to reset it... HOWEVER it may just need a truss rod adjustment. The truss rod bends the neck slightly to set string height in the middle of the neck.

Check the neck to body attachment. There may be a problem there, especially if it has been strained in the past. The fact that the strings were so high when you got this would indicate there MAY be a problem with the neck attachment or the body where it attaches. Word of caution: Investigate how repairs are done on the instrument before attempting a fix. Using wrong materials can permanently disable an instrument. Banjos DO go out of tune easily, depending on how they are played. Another thing to remember is that strings are within about 10% of breaking when in tune on stringed instruments.

Tune Guitar strings 1,2 & 3 to Banjo and play with finger pickers. Bass strings to accompany. Developed complicated chords (Including Bass strings) I need to record this on paper - any tips?


Are you familiar with Tablature notation. It's instrument specific and instead od a regular staff you maje a duagram od the instruments strings looking down on the neck and then instead of notes the number of the fret goes on the relevant 'string'
https://www.guitartricks.com/helptab.php
and it's similar for banjo. Google tablature explained and a page comes up with a selection of instrument tabs.

I tune my guitars at 400 using a clip on tuner,which I believe is concert pitch I've recently bought a 5 string blue grass banjo .I set tuner to c mode to tune banjo is this correct


Actually, concert pitch is A=440 rather than A=400. Normally a 5 string banjo is tuned G (octave) D G B D though many variations exist.

What would cause certain strings on my banjo to have a flat sound and not a ringing tone? These are a brand new set. thank you ...


The laws of physics govern this. The strings "ring" while they resonate. The time they resonate is related to the "Q" of the string or the efficiency. The Q is the enrgy stored divided by the energy lost per CYCLE of the oscilation. Strings that damp out quickly have a low "Q". This can be caused by any of several things thaat include anything that can dampen the oscillation. String quality is important as well as secure attachemnt at each end and proper placement in the nut at the head. See if you can find anything that creats drag INCLUDING string height that affects the windage as they vibrate. First place to look is at the resonator end. Are the strings well attached at the end? Is the bridge properly placed and setting tight on the head? The bridge often has offsetss for some strings... check that it is properly oriented. I will refer you to videos on banjo stringing on YouTube, They can cover much more than we can here using text.

No notes on my guitars e string will bend


Hello
Have a look at the neck part where the strings move through that aligning unit which has the 6 slits cut into it where the strings goes through at the top of the guitar neck.

What usually happens, the slits get worked out, thus the strings move fractions closer to the fret board which will result in a muffled sound if you press down on the string you get a fret buzz. This happens when the string touches the fret board on more than one spot.

When you play a solo you can get a muffled sound out of certain strings. This happened to me, i just replaced this unit, very cheap, and all was fixed. Hope this can work.

Best regards
