This banjo was custom built in 2016 by Robin Smith. The banjo has been played but extremely well taken care of. Other than some signs of playing and some dust it is practically like new. It plays wonderfully and has great volume with the tone you'd expect from an 11" ring with a brass hoop tone ring. The tunneled fifth string makes for extremely comfortable playing up and down the neck and the custom openback one piece flange makes for a very comfortable banjo on your lap when sitting. The heavier Gibson like rim construction gives the banjo a lot of volume and a well rounded brighter tone. The neck has almost a speed neck finish to it as the lacquer is much thinner on the back of the neck than everywhere else. It's not down to bare wood and oiled like a speed neck would be but the lacquer is very light and thing making for a very fast and comfortable playing neck. Sound/video clips available upon request. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions about this banjo.
Nut Width - 1.22" with thinner neck profile.
25-7/16" Scale Length
Sold with an excellent condition Guardian hard shell case.
