Vern Marr has made banjos in Oregon for decades and you rarely see one for sale, because they are all very unique and special. Very solidly made banjos. This one has a 12” walnut block rim with an ebony tone ring and a fiberskin head. Flush fret walnut neck with a 22 3/4” scale. 17 frets to the rim, like a tenor. Bay State style peghead with a rosewood overlay and fingerboard.
PT Grover was playing this banjo with the Foghorn Stringband when I moved here. It can be heard in a full band situation. Little banjo with a big voice. Comes with a hard shell case and a fresh set up.
