Banjo players are well known for taking piles of banjo parts and constructing fantastic instruments from a variety of parts. That is what this banjo is. The parts that were used on this are definitely quality parts and this is a really good looking and sounding banjo.
This starts with a 3 ply hard rock maple shell. This has a mahogany resonator and a flamed maple neck. The hardware is nickel. This has a one piece flange and a nickel plated 20 hole tone ring. The fretboard is rosewood with a bowtie inlay pattern. This also has really attractive carving on the back of the headstock and neck heel. This has a geared 5th string tuner and classic style D tuners. This has a lot of good quality parts and is put together with the same design of a Gibson Banjo with the hard rock maple shell, 20 hole ring, bowtie inlay etc.
This is a good sounding banjo. This would be a great option for the player that doesnít want to spend a lot but does want to get something that is good. The banjo is absolutely playable now and I know a lot of people that prefer this type of string height. But I look at this as high and I think this would be better advertised as a project. This also includes a hardshell case.
We professionally cleaned this banjo here at the Banjo Warehouse. We disassembled the pot and buffed all of the metal with a high powered buffer. The wood has been waxed and now this has a really nice shine to it. We cleaned and oiled the fretboard as well. This was already in good shape on the way in so there isnít much wear anyways. The resonator and neck look great. The fretboard is also in good shape. The first 5 frets show some wear but that does not effect the function of the banjo. The rest of the frets look really good. There are spikes at the 7th-10th frets. This is in really good shape and has a clean case as well. This banjo also has a new Remo Head, new Huber Bridge and new Huber Strings.
