Banjo #68, 10″ cherry C scale-$750

This is my third C scale banjo and the first with brass hardware.  It’s made from cherry with a curly walnut peghead overlay and heel cap and a persimmon fretboard with EVO fret wire.  The scale length is 19-3/4″ 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 head and tailpiece came from Smakula Fretted Instruments and the balance of the hardware is from Balsam Banjo Works.  The finish is Tru Oil.  The overall length is slightly under 30″.  To see a video demonstration of this banjo please follow the link below:
