This is not a guitar banjo but a 5 string configuration with an extra, low bass string(low G in standard G tuning. Built to my specs with Brooks input. SN 71. Scale=approx. 26 in.Width at nut=1.5 in. 12 in.pot,3 in.deep with Whyte Laydie style tine ring. "Gun stock"walnut neck and pot. Matte finish. Ebony rim cap and fb. 1906 Indian head penny in burled peghead. Raw brass hardware. 30 brackets. Romero 6 string tp. Geared tuners with amber buttons. Extra custom string set, Lakota strap, Custom Kat Eyz bridge. Renaisance head. Packed well in a padded gig bag. Although uncommon there was a 6 string in Stewarts 1895 catalogue. Designed for OT playing,you can do melodies in the bass. It also adds richness to the tone even if you aren't fretting the extra string. I wrote an article on 6 strings with Dan Levenson'shelp for tab a few years ago for BNL called "The Other Six String Banjo"which should still be archived. No problems. VG condition with minor play wear.
