This is one of the best Japanese Banjos with a rich, strong aggressive sound.
Fine details and top quality components as you would expect from early Japanese craftsmanship.
This has a beautiful resonator which I am not certain of wood ,probably maple but it is amazing and clearly visible through the clear head. The neck I believe is maple. This has an ebony fret board.
This has chrome hardware which is gorgeous and all original. This has a one piece flange. The fret board looks like ebony and has a Wreath inlay pattern with white binding on each side of the neck. The resonator also has white binding with some w/b/w binding. Has a clam shell tailpiece, a full size tone ring and a fat shell.
A classic look that is reminiscent of American classics.
This is a really incredible banjo that was made during a time in Japan that they had a strong emphasis on quality. This is all original and also includes a hard shell case.
