Hi BHO, happy new year! Up for sale is a 2008 Romero 12Ē Winter Ltd banjo. I purchased this from Elderly this past year, but need to pair down my collection a bit and have decided to hang on to my Seeders banjos for the time being.
This one is in great condition with its original hard shell case and a Romero bracket wrench. The biggest flaw I can find is a bit of marking where someone must have had a strap attached, otherwise itís very clean with a fresh setup from Eldery and little to no fret wear.
Iím posting the original specs from Jasonís site, along with current photos of the banjo i just took today. There is also a great YouTube clip from Zepp Music featuring one of these if youíre looking for a sound sample.
Iím relatively new to this site, but have made a couple great purchases here already and have many happy sales between the UMGF, AGF, and reverb. Letís connect via email, text, or phone. Iíd love to chat about the banjo and would be glad to provide references etc.
Please reach out with questions or for more information. Thanks for looking!
