For sale is a Bart Reiter internal resonator banjo that was made between 1995 and 1996. It's serial number is 1245. It has an 11" diameter internal resonator rim with a Bacon tone ring. The neck is made of flamed maple. The peghead has an ebony overlay with a 5-pointed star inlay. There is another star inlay in the ebony fingerboard at the 5th fret. This particular banjo has a unique combination of peghead shape and inlay. The shape of the peghead is the same as the Grand Concert model, but the inlay is the same as the Professional model. It has a 26.25" scale. The full specifications are the same as seen here: http://reiterbanjos.com/prof.html. It also has a professionally done scoop in the fingerboard below the 17th fret. I have it set up with a Gold-tone skin head currently, but could include the original fiberskyn head. The action is 1/8" at the 12th fret. It his mild fret wear at the first few frets. The finish is overall good, but like many of Bart Reiter's instruments of the age, there is some mild checking in the nitrocellulose laquer. This is noticeable at the very edge of the scallops in the peghead, and I tried to capture that in the pictures. It also comes with the original hard-shell TKL case.

The banjo has a full, woody tone with a bell-like finish, and a nice presence in a jam session. Bart Reiter's banjos are known for their excellent tone, sturdy construction, and professional playability. This one is no exception.

I have bought and sold a couple of banjos through the hangout before, so I could provide references if need be. Preferred payment type is either PayPal or a certified check.
