This is a sweet sounding 80's Wildwood Minstrel tubaphone banjo, all original, set up, and ready to play! The neck is perfect made of tiger-striped flame maple. The hardware is in great shape, as are the original Schaller tuners. There are a few very minor chips in the nitrocellulous lacquer finish, but these are few and don't affect playing. The head is a Remo Renaissance and is in perfect shape. The banjo has a 26 3/48" scale. The action is 1/8" at the 12th fret. The truss rod is accessible at the base of the heel. The 11" block rim measures 2 7/8" deep and 5/8" thick--with the tubaphone tone ring, this is a tone machine, no exaggeration. Shipped in a good quality hard shell open back case.
