I made this banjo in 2015 and sold it to a very nice person and a banjo lover that lives in a town near my hometown.
He called me a few days ago to ask if I would sell it back for him because he is at the end of his life and he does not know anyone who plays the banjo. He is not used to computers and does not now how to put it for sale in a banjo community.
It's a wonderful instrument, with high quality parts and still look like new.
So I am re posting the pictures and ad I posted back in 2015 with the description.
I was sold for 2650$ USD in 2015. Asking 2100$ I would not build one like this for less than 3400$ today.
