I have an Early Scott Vestal Stealth Neck for sale.

26.38” scale length (standard banjo scale length)
7.25” radius on frets 1-22

Backstory on this neck:
Stealth neck #1 was built by Phil Davidson from the UK, and it featured the same specs listed above. Scott then hired Dave Perkins to build stealth necks, approximately 3 were built before going out of business. Then Scott hired Marty Lanham(Nashville Guitar Company) to build them, and he built a few before settling with Robin Smith to build the stealth necks we have today. The Robin Smith Stealths are 25.5” scale, 10”-16” compound radius, and the longer narrower head stock. I spoke with Scott about this neck, and he confirmed this is a Marty Lanham neck since it matches the specs of the original Davidson Stealth neck. Which puts this as one of the first handful of stealth necks ever built. This neck was hanging in Robin Smiths shop for a while until his untimely passing and I purchased it from the person who acquired it from his estate.

This neck will need cut to fit your pot assembly. I have a custom Kateyez Capo that was made specifically for this neck for frets 1-5 that I will include with it. There is one piece of binding broke off of it on the first fret. Shouldn’t be a hard fix.

I’m asking $800 for the neck with the capo, and shipping included. I am also interested in trades to regular 5 string Banjo necks. Mahogany only. OPF. Message me for more info pics etc.
