I have a brand picking new Mike Ramsey / Chanterelle " Woody" model banjo. It's a sad day when it's time to sell my last Ramsey banjo, but we closed our store this year, after 40 great years in business and I won't be ordering any more...... *sigh*
Mike Ramsey makes a high quality instrument that looks new, but plays like it's broken in, warmed up, and full of old time, cold mountain hymns & toe tappers. This one is no exception. It has a mahogany neck instead of a maple neck which is usually preferred by the seasoned picker, a Bubinga Tone Ring, and a 12"Rim to boot. *thumb candy*
New with the Hardshell case $1300 plus $25 shipping via Paypal.
