For Sale or Trade: Charles Paddock Corian-Rim Banjo




This is a beautiful and very cool hand-built flamey maple banjo by the late Charles Paddock. Googling his name will show you some cool (and weird!) banjos. Charles built some wild-looking necks, made some really cool custom flanges and resonators and was best-known for his Corian (yes the countertop material) rims. This is one of those Corian rim banjos - beveled at the top like a flathead. This was one of his shop banjos so despite being brand new, it has a few minor dings on the neck and the resonator. I love his banjos - I own two others which is why I'm letting this one go. Paddock's Corian-rim banjos are lighter than a metal ring masterclone and sound really wonderful.

This banjo is almost entirely flame-maple with a nice honey stain and rosewood - even the resonator is bound in rosewood. Only the heelcap is white plastic. This one has the same tuners used on Ome's banjos (I think made by Saga) with amber-ish buttons, top quality nickel flange/tension hoop/armrest/tailpiece and a single co-rod design.

This comes in a shop travelite case.
