Originally had this listed as a Liberty Banjo, but was then pointed out to me that this is a Liberty BackStep pot mated to a Gariepy five string neck (Thank You Nick Danger) Back step pot is a No Tone Ring Model. Beautiful typical Liberty Mahogany Resonator. Five Piece Gariepy neck that looks to be Mahogany layered with Walnut and ebony. Rosewood fingerboard. The Doctor, Ralph Stanley autographed the head, which is a nice addition. A photo of him magic marking this banjo with his name will be included with the instrument.
Had it for a number of years and I just donít play it. Selling this and a number of other banjos and parts to fund another Gibson acquisition, so check back over the next few days/weeks to see what I have up.
This banjo was discussed in a previous archived post back in 2016 : banjohangout.org/archive/314897
Very well made and a great banjo.
PM me if at all interested. I will return messages, just may take a day or so given my work. No sales even considered unless I can speak directly with you on the phone given all the scams in the universe. Will accept any and all reasonable offers.
