It is with great sadness that I list this Nechville Moonshine. While I love the banjo, I do not agree with how Tom Nechville conducts business. There's a thread here on the forums if you want to read more before purchasing or trading for this banjo.

25.5 inch scale
Maple Neck
Radiused Neck
Tunneled 5th string
Spikes at 7,8,9,10
11 inch pot
Copper clearcoat
Archtop tone ring is installed, but I will include the hybrid tone ring with the purchase. The hybrid has a brass tube on top of a wooden ring, so it decreases the weight of the banjo while maintaining a brighter tone.
Current strings are Medium Phosphor Bronze from D'addario. I Just put them on a couple of weeks ago.

Condition: there's some scuffs underneath the arm rest which cannot be seen as long as it is attached, and some scratches at the bottom of the pot (where it would sit in your lap). They were there when I bought the banjo, so I'm assuming they came from a zipper or buckle. The head has some wear in the usual spots. A few scratches on the tail piece.

Trade information:
non-negotiable: 25.5 scale or shorter. 11" head or smaller. Ethical maker/luthier. No Deerings or Gold Tones. I'm open to a lot of options, but I do prefer a brighter banjo and one that is suited more for fingerstyle than frailing. I lean more towards openback than resonator.

If the banjo is shipped, I'll send a quote once I've dropped it off at UPS. I'm willing to meet in person if you're within about an hour or two of my location.

Thank you for your consideration.
