This banjo was built in early 2015. I have played it at jams several times, but it has overall very light use. The brass parts have begun to acquire the typical patina of raw brass.

Shipping for this banjo, including insurance, will cost at least $35 (via USPS) or more, depending on packaging weight and destination. No case is included in this sale. If you are going to buy a case, I strongly recommend that you buy one online, have it shipped to me, and I will repackage the case with the banjo inside and ship it to you. This will ensure maximum protection for the instrument. It will fit into a standard resonator banjo case, due to the 12" pot size.
