For Sale: Matthew Arcara Banjo






12 inch walnut pot
Rolled-brass tone ring
Hand-carved walnut neck
Renaissance head
Oil and wax finish (neck and pot)
Gotoh tuners
25.5 inch scale length

I'm selling my Matthew Arcara banjo. It sounds and plays great. I'm linking to a few MP3s that I recorded with this instrument so you can hear it for yourself. The sound is warm and round due to the 12 inch pot with a rolled brass tone ring. But it's also crisp and bright so single-note melodies stand out. My favorite part of this banjo is the vintage neck which is made from a large, deep cut, sort of like a Chuck Lee banjo.

Although I played it almost daily over the past year, it is in excellent condition and, other than very minor playing wear, there are no issues of which you should be aware. The banjo is all original with the exception of a Buckeye Banjos tailpiece which is an improvement over the original no knot tailpiece. I am shipping it with a brand new Superior hard-shell case (black exterior, green interior).

I'll pack the banjo carefully so it arrives at your door safely. I'll check my banjo hangout account every day so please send me a message if you have any questions.
