Banjo #36, Mahogany 12″-sold

This is my 36th banjo, completed in October 2016.  It is made from African mahogany with a rosewood fretboard and peghead overlay.   The pot is 12″ in diameter and about 3-1/8″ deep, with a wood tone ring profile turned into the top of the rim, a Renaissance head and raw brass hardware.  I made the Van Eps style tension hoop myself, and the rest of the hardware was bought.  The scale length is 25.5 inches and the nut width is 1-3/8″, position dots are brass and the frets are EVO Gold, which is harder than conventional nickel-silver fret wire and should wear longer.  There is a two way truss rod in the neck, accessed from the heel for adjustment.  The tuners are Gotoh raw brass and they are, as always with Gotoh, very smooth in operation.  The tailpiece is a No-Knot.  The bridge is solid maple such as I usually make.  The nut is Corian.  I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.  To see a video demo of this banjo please follow the link below to YouTube.
