Hello, this is a modern build, not vintage. Trying to get help with an ID. I managed to find Glenn Nelson on here and the headstock looks possibly similar to his work, but i have not been able to confirm. I believe it is flushfret. Looks like rosewood and birdseye maple.

That looks similar to some banjos that Glenn has made. I took lessons from Glenn for a while. A really wonderful guy and great luthier. His shop is called Mockingbird Music. You could try sending him an email through his website. mockingbirdmusic.com/

I was watching that one on eBay. I also thought it looked like a flush fretted banjo of a cool design!

It went a lil bit over what i intended on bidding,  but looks to be a solid make. The pot looks like birdseye, and then maybe rosewood headstock or koa? I really loved  the heel cap and fretboard inlay details but i honestly dont know much more than aesthetics and that ive been trying to get my hands on a flush fret banjo for quite some time.

Thanks for the recomendation to contact him. I tried here on BHO with no luck, but got an email response confirming this is indeed his manufacture.
