For Sale: 12" cherry banjo, Zach Hoyt #161






This banjo is made from cherry with walnut neck stripe, heel cap, rim cap, and peghead overlay, and a jatoba fretboard.  I will sell the banjo without the Romero-style armrest for $30 less if you don't want it.  This banjo has a Renaissance head on a 12" block rim, 5/8" thick, with a wood tone ring profile.  The scale length is 25-1/2" and the nut is 1-3/8" wide.  The neck has a two way truss rod accessed from the heel, brass dots, EVO fret wire, Gotoh tuners and Corian nuts.  I made the Van Eps style tension hoop and the dowel stick yoke, the tailpiece and head came from Smakula Fretted Instruments and the rest of the hardware came from Balsam Banjo Works.   The finish is Tru Oil.  There is a brass plate on the dowel stick with the banjo number and such on it.  The banjo is currently set up with a tall 5th string nut to raise the 5th to the level of the other strings, but I can shorten the nut so the string rests on the 5th fret if desired.  I can also add 5th string spikes for $5 each.  If you would prefer a Fiberskyn head I can install one at no extra cost.  To see a video demonstration of this banjo please follow the link below:
