1908 A.C. Fairbanks Whyte Laydie No. 2 banjorine (sn 24361). Very scarce model. 10 3/4" maple rim, Whyte Laydie tone ring, 19 3/4" scale, 17 frets, exquisitely hand engraved m.o.p. star and gryphon in the peghead and fingerboard inlays. Straight neck, great frets. Inlay engravings are strong. Bracket band, original tension tuning pegs and No-Knot tailpiece. New set up with Renaissance head, nylon strings and an NOS vintage Grover two-footed maple bridge. There are three replacement hooks and nuts, also of the same or older vintage as the banjo, that are close match to the originals. The tone is superbly sweet, penetrating and loud, as would be expected. No disappointment with his one. Buyer using credit card or Paypal please add 3%.
