Note: This banjo is a demo model- the neck was fractured below the volute and has been repaired. There are some superficial dings and light scratches but overall it is very clean.

Due to the repair on the neck we will warranty it for a period of 5 years to the original owner. The banjo is priced accordingly so it's a great opportunity to rock it as is or have something to play while we build you your dream neck. Or we could build a new neck like the one that's on it that would carry our lifetime warranty. Or a stripped down maple 'midnight' neck with ivoroid binding.

Features include:

  • Starizon inlay in mother of pearl
  • 7-12" compound radius
  • Tunneled 5th string
  • Coco/sap fingerboard and peghead overlay
  • High ratio gunmetal amber perloid button tuners
  • Curly maple neck and resonator
  • Ivoroid binding
  • Black powdercoated Heli-Mount frame
  • Hybrid tone ring
  • Cyclotronic rim and ball bearing system
  • White Remo head made in Taiwan
