Banjo #58, walnut 12″ with brass hardware-$920

This banjo has a walnut rim, neck and armrest, with a curly walnut peghead overlay and rim cap and a rosewood fretboard and heel cap.  I will sell the banjo without the armrest for $35 less if the armrest isn’t wanted.  This banjo has a Renaissance head on a 12″ rim with a wood tone ring profile.  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.  To see a video of this banjo please follow the link below:
