00:27Usually a banjo neck is made from a piece of wood a little over 2" wide. Since the peghead is wider than this, it is necessary to add width to the peghead area by gluing two pieces of matching wood to the sides of the peghead part of the neck. These are the "ears" or Peghead Ears. In ads for vintage banjos it is not uncommon to see a description that includes "Damage to one ear" or some other reference.
