Banjo #78, 10″ mahogany C scale-$800

This is my 5th C scale banjo, it’s made from African mahogany (khaya family) with an ebony peghead overlay, heel cap and fretboard.  The frets are EVO and the nuts are Corian.  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″ and weight is approximately 3 pounds 12 ounces.  To see a video demonstration of this banjo please follow the link below:
