Banjo #138, 11″ mahogany A scale-$980

This is my second mahogany A scale banjo.  The neck, rim, and Romero-style armrest are made from African mahogany (khaya family) with a rosewood peghead overlay and fretboard and a walnut rim cap.  If you don’t want the armrest let me know and I’ll take it off and lower the price by $35.  The tuners are made by Gotoh, the frets are EVO and the nuts are Corian.  The scale length is 23″ and the nut width is 1-3/8″.   There is a two way truss rod accessed at the heel of the neck.  I made the Van Eps style tension hoop and the dowel stick brace,  the Renaissance head and the tailpiece came from Smakula Fretted Instruments, and the rest of the hardware is from Balsam Banjo Works.  The finish is Tru Oil.  I can put a Fiberskyn head on instead at no extra charge, if you’d prefer that just let me know.  I can install 5th string spikes for $5 each.  To see a short video demonstration of this banjo please follow the link below.
