This Sparkle 6 with F.O.N. 9242-18 was originally a flathead and still retains its full un-cut label and rim which is quite rare. The original resonator is in fantastic condition with the classic Style 6 design. The 2-pc flange is original to the banjo with modern hooks, nuts, armrest, tension hoop, armrest, and tail piece. The tone ring is a Huber HR-30 with engraving from Nick Kimmons. The neck is by Frank Neat using the prewar original overlay and looks and feels fantastic. Here's a video from YouTube of this banjo: youtube.com/watch?v=Td9yNrbjMqU
