For Sale: 2014 Flinthill FHB-280A arch-top

This is basically an arch-top Recording King, put together by less experienced builders in Korea (there's lots of stories about this on the hangout, don't quote me as gospel!) I've had extensive setup work done to it and also replaced the original junk bridge and tailpiece with a thin Snuffy new-generation bridge and an authentic Presto tailpiece. This plays much better than one you'd buy off the shelf.

If you're looking to try out the arch-top sound on an affordable banjo that's still good enough to gig with, this is the one. In excellent condition, I didn't stay with this banjo for too long (had some setup issues that have since been resolved). I'm selling it now because I have two other arch-top banjos and three is a bit excessive. Has capo spikes on 7, 9 and 10. Will include a strap and a set of Schaller D-tuners.
