Up for sale is my Yates BT 49 from the Ron Stewart line of banjos. Its number 9 out of 12 made. It is constructed of maple, with the distressed finish. It has the concentric rings on the back of the resonator. I have added a new set of the Mighty D "D tuners", and they work great. They can be removed if needed. The original box and instructions will be included.
Banjo has RR spikes at 2, 3 & 4 frets. Also a package of Yates strings. Comes with the original Yates Red Line Case in decent condition. Handle on the case is functional, but will eventually need minor repair. The banjo current is setup with a Scorpion 656 bridge, and Yates strings and plays and sounds great! I would describe the action as medium low. The original Yates 5/8 bridge is included. Okay, the banjo has some bumps and marks. Nothing major, as it really fits the distressed finish. I tried to show them in the photos best I could. Fret wear on first five frets but they are not buzzing or causing any issues. Belt buckle rash on back of resonator. If you are looking for a mint condition, like new banjo, this aint it. If your looking for a great playing and sounding banjo, well, take a look. Please note the strap is NOT included with the sale. If you would like a sound sample, please email me and I will forward a sample of me playing it. I would prefer not to ship out of country. No trades please. Any questions, please let me know.The wooden armrest displayed in the pics will not be included with the Banjo. It will come with the original armrest. I will consider reasonable offers. Thanks for looking. As for inquiring minds, Im selling it because I have purchased another Banjo. Mike
