Pisgah Possum #253 - 12” with cherry pot, cherry neck and brass hardware. Persimmon hardwood tone ring and fingerboard. The persimmon has really started to gain full color and character and the cherry pot and neck are developing some of that warm redness that comes with time. I bought this banjo direct from Patrick Heavner at Pisgah two years ago. I have ordered a custom instrument so the herd must be thinned!
These instruments are a great value. They’re USA made from sustainable hardwoods in a 100% solar-powered shop. Nice warm tone with old time plunk. Nice patina starting on the brass. The individual colors in the persimmon fingerboard are becoming more distinct with time. A few more years (as the cherry darkens) this thing will look so cool! (I'm starting to get cold feet thinking about that.)
Measurements: standard 26.25" Pisgah scale length; nut is 1 3/8" or 1 7/16" (I can't decide!). This instrument is in excellent condition!
The strap and bridge in photos NOT included. Original bridge with the banjo.
$1000 including a Superior bump-style case (the lock latch needs key mechanism put back in - otherwise works fine. Does anyone really lock these things?). Free shipping in the continental U.S. Contact me through the hangout. Reasonable offers entertained. I paid $1250 for the banjo and case would run you at least $100.
A great banjo for a good price just in time for festival and camp season.
