#3560 from Bart Reiter. The Galax is Bart's standard model with the addition of an electric tone ring. No bracket band so not a "whyte laydie" but has that electric mojo. To the best of my knowledge, this is a maple pot and neck stained brown. A few signs of player wear but nothing dramatic *I have added photos of the player wear after receiving numerous inquiries. **Some fret wear shown in last picture are the first and second frets - no intonation or buzzing issues. The Elite head shows this banjo has been played but there are no issues in tone, function, or playability. I added some mp3's on my profile...

I bought this about a year ago here on the Hangout. I have not gigged this banjo out so its in the same shape I got it. Comes with a Superior gig bag. I have ordered a custom 11" with electric tone ring so this Galax needs a new home.
Rumors suggest Bart is nearing the end of his production years, so I may be parting with a piece of history...
