This is a great sounding 1979 Saga Kit Banjo, a 5 string open back with a full size flat head no hole brass and nickel tone ring. It has a solid mahogany neck, a rosewood fretboard and a just a hair under 3/4" 9 ply maple(?) rim. The tuners are newer planets, like the ones on Gold Tone banjos. The bridge is a compensated Shubb, kinda cool. It has a 26 3/8" scale, and it has 1 3/16" nut width. It's an 11 pot with a frosted top head. The tail piece looks identical to my '65 Gibson RB-180's Waverly, thick brass and adjustable. The neck is straight and the frets are in great shape. It sings all the way up the neck. This is a working class Deering Clawgrass, and it definitely can be set up for that sound. There's no case, but it will fit any open back case or bag. This weighs nearly as much a Gibson Mastertone model. It's a solid banjo!
