For anyone wondering why I’m selling this, it’s because I discovered I had a passion for the mandolin and had to figure out a way to generate some funds. For a little background, bought this amazing powerful and sweet sounding Yates last year, am the original and sole owner and it has been maintained in a smoke free, humidity controlled environment. It’s seen very little play time with no significant fret wear. I know withou a doubt that Iwill live to regret the day that It sells. There was a problem with the neck that required I send it back to Warren for repair. He had to make a new neck as the truss rod was defective and then the banjo came back as new and better than ever. There is absolutely no scratches, dents or dings of any kind and the banjo is essentially as new as the day I purchased it directly from Warren. This is the distressed model and has the Torrefied (thermally aged) rim and resonator as well as hot hide glue construction on the rim and resonator. I have linked a YouTube video of Warren playing it after he had made the new neck and it’ll give you an idea of just how beautiful of a tone this banjo has, just follow the link below where it says more info URL. I can provide better and more pictures upon request, just let me know. I am not nearly as fine a picker as Warren but if you follow this link it’ll give you another sample of me playing it as well.

Feel free to call me with any questions or concerns. Drew (832) 451-7783
