Morgan Monroe MNB-2 Flathead Banjo

This is an EARLY model Morgan Monroe MNB-2W banjo, serial #00550. The wood is in mint condition. The metal is could use a polishing if you are into that! I like the patina.
I contacted the company to get some info on this banjo. They said it was a highly sought after model. I can see why, great quality and tone, especially after set up. It is is all original except for the new bridge, 5th string capo, 15th fret inlay and case. I had it professionally set up by banjo builder Randall Wyatt of Searcy, AR.
The rim was finished under the tone ring from the factory and it half killed the tone. After Randall Wyatt turned the rim and did the entire set up the banjo came alive. I am sitting here playing my 1976 Gold Star and the Morgan Monroe back and forth and this Morgan Monroe is just a hair under the Gold Star and this is an awesome Gold Star. Many thanks to Randall Wyatt who set them up.

Hard shell case included.
Strap not included.
