For Sale: The ULTIMATE Reso-Tone

Check out this video of me playing the banjo for sale....

If you learned to play the banjo in the 60s or 70s then you probably learned on one of these. I’ve always been a big fan. They can sound better than they have a right to sound, that’s for sure.
I am offering for your playing/collecting enjoyment the ULTIMATE Reso-Tone banjo.
Why the ultimate you ask? Because this is actually a combination of two different generations of the Reso-Tone banjo. The bottom half is from the “fancier” of the resotone line—the one with 30 hooks! Ralph Stanley used to say growing up that the more hooks a banjo had then the better the banjo was! If that still holds true then this one is a beauty! The 30 hooks on this example actually hold on the original hide head.
The neck is from the later line of resotones. I’ve found it to be a little bit easier to play and decided that it would fit my old pot just perfectly so I bought it. It’s been a great marriage between the two but it’s time for them both to separate from me. So here she is offered for a great price.
Bakalite all around. Medium weight moon bridge, geared fifth string peg added. Tailpiece has had a screw added to make it adjustable. This one is of course the model with a resonator.
Check out my YouTube videos to hear this baby crack. Although it was tuned to full pitch in the videos you can get even more growl if you tune them down like Hunter Robinson does—they actually have a really great sound this way. Check out his videos as well.
