Banjo #125, walnut 12″ with WL-type tone ring-$1120

This banjo has a walnut rim, neck and Romero-style armrest.  I will sell the banjo without the armrest for $35 less.  This banjo has a Renaissance head on a 12″ block rim with a brass Whyte Laydie/Electric type tone ring and a walnut rim cap.  The fretboard is ebony, the scale length is 25-1/2″ and the nut is 1-3/8″ wide.  The neck has a two way truss rod accessed from the heel, brass dots, EVO fret wire, Gotoh tuners and Corian nuts.  I made the Van Eps style tension hoop and the dowel stick yoke, the tailpiece and head came from Smakula Fretted Instruments and the rest of the hardware came from Balsam Banjo Works.   The finish is Tru Oil.  There is a brass plate on the dowel stick with the banjo number and such on it.  I can add 5th string spikes for $5 each.  To see a video of this banjo and #126 please follow the link below:
