Need to move send offers. Very nice 2005 Stelling Crusader with some nice extras. Overall excellent condition. There is minor fret wear, but no buzzing. The finish is marred on the back of the peg head, perhaps from a clip on tuner. I think it could be buffed out as it not really bad. Other than that that wood and metal are all in great shape. I'm including a nearly new Yates leather strap and a near new Elliott capo. That's over $200 dollars of extras! Banjo ships with a like new Guardian vintage arch top case. Please note the banjo is an arch top, but this is not your typical arch top sound. However, should you decide to change to a flat top ring Stelling will exchange the ring. They will not sell you a ring but will trade them out for a very nominal fee.
Banjo is set up with an 11/16" Stelling bridge. The rim is the Tony Pass thin skirt rim. I thought this would be my forever banjo, but a new Nechville has my attention right now. Only trades I might consider would be a Yates or quality Gibson conversion.
I received this one in a trade with Jim Britton. There is a YouTube video of Jim playing this banjo. Search Stelling Crusader archtop to view.
I'll take $2300 if you don't want the strap and capo.
