I am listing this for Ernie Wells, luthier from Connersville, Indiana. Ernie has been building and customizing banjos for over 40 years, so please contact him directly for all the details about this banjo. This beautiful Bella Voce has a serial number of 8844-7. Ernie has owned it for about 9 months. According to the paperwork in the case, the conversion neck was built by Jim Selma from Akron, Ohio in 1982. There is a cosmetic flaw on the resonator as seen in the pictures where one edge has been worn. Ernie has not done any work to the banjo so it is being sold as it. Again, I urge you to call Ernie directly at 765-825-5200 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 765-825-5200 end_of_the_skype_highlighting or 765-266-3178.
