For Sale: Charles Paddock Corian-Rim Banjo






This is a resonator banjo with a Corian rim built by the late Charles Paddock of NY. I bought this on BHO about a year ago, but then I started playing more clawhammer and didn't use this one much.

It has a loud, clear tone, a good bluegrass banjo.

The neck is one-piece flame maple with a rosewood fretboard. The fretboard is unfinished and is smooth and fast. The neck is 1.2" wide at the nut, 1.85" wide at the heel. The nut is bone. It has a high 5th-string pip at the height of the other strings. Action is currently 0.10" at the 12th fret.

The resonator is also constructed of flame maple.

The rim, as mentioned, is made of Corian, the countertop material, a resin-bonded mineral composite. It has a "tone ring" bevel cut on the top. It is about 3/8" - 1/2" thick at the top side, and below the flange it is 1/4" thick. It has one coordinator rod inside the pot.

Head is a Remo Weatherking, bridge is a 1/2" Scorpion, and the banjo is currently strung with GHS light gauge strings.

Banjo weight is 9# 6 oz.

It was described as a "shop banjo". It is well-built but the finishing touches are not perfect. It also has a few dings and nicks from usual wear and tear.

Ships with case.
