This is a beautiful, mellow-sounding vintage banjo with excellent intonation. It was my main player for quite a few years, and at one point I upgraded to geared tuning pegs, which a woodworker carved ebony knobs for. I found it to be perfect for backing up a single fiddle, or for more unobtrusive solo playing. It is set up for fairly high action. I have made a lot of wonderful memories with this one! I hate to sell it, but I now have 5 banjos, and this one is the least played, so I am trying to be pragmatic. I will send more photos upon request.
