This banjo is being held for a buyer at the moment for seven days!!This is a really great banjo. The sound has a really nice resonance and plays very well. It is a beautiful piece with the exception of one thing. Who ever owned this banjo before decided to laminate an eagle to the resonator as witnessed by the pictures. I really believe the resonator either needs to be refinished or replaced. It is fine the way it stands if you like the eagle but it is not my personal taste. The banjo has new frets, Snuffy Bridge and head and is in the original case. Richie Dotson did a fine job of setting up this banjo ! I purchased the banjo a little over a year ago and hate to part with it but the wife says some of your instruments need to be in the hands of folks who will play them a lot. I will be glad to answer any questions you might have. Just leave me your tel# and I will call you right back or email me.
In addition if you want to make it one fine clawhammer banjo all you would have to do is take the flange off and maybe raise the bridge and it would suit the bill just fine.
