Noel Booth Open back 5 string banjo #38. Old Fiddle Road Banjo Works 12" cherry rim/tone ring, mahogany neck and dowel stick, Macassar ebony fretboard and peghead overlay, bone nut, 5 Star tuners and a curly cherry thinline armrest. Very light fret wear.
Recently checked out by luthier Mark Hickler Elite head replaced with skin head he had in the shop. Both heads included.
Excellent condition. And playability.
I measure the nut at 1.33 inches and the scale at 25 7/8 inches. Rim depth is 3”. Neck has side dot inlays. Adjustable truss rod per the Old Fiddle Road web site and e-mail from Noel.
Comes with a never used Pisgah gig bag
A very nice handcrafted American luthier made instrument at a very reasonable price. I pack well for shipping.
Need to sell to fund another banjo.
Thanks for looking at my ad.
