2009 Merlefest Stelling for sale.
This is *The* 2009 Merlefest Stelling. Geoff makes 1 banjo per year to be raffled off for the festival and this is the banjo for 2009. The photos tell a good bit of the story on this banjo. Curly maple with a custom silver-grey stain. Custom headstock inlay featuring the Merlefest mascot raccoon. Engraved tailpiece with the same and engraved arm rest with "Merlefest 2009." Red Fox style abalone maple leaf inlays.
This is an exceptional sounding Stelling. The setup is pretty much factory, but it's dialed in just right. I'd estimate this banjo has less than 10 hours playing time, so it's very much mint and in collectable condition should you wish to purchase it for that purpose. It comes with the original warranty cards (blank), invoice from Geoff Stelling to Merlefest for this banjo and other paperwork. Original hardshell Stelling TKL case.
This is one of 3 banjos that I am selling for BHO member "Cripplecreeker." Todd Sullivan asked me to sell these banjos on his behalf and I have them in my possession. I am willing and able to answer any and all questions as well as put you in touch with Todd as needed.
