If you've checked out this banjo previously, you probably noticed my price change (twice in 2 days). I'm just not sure if I really want to part with it! But, if this is your first time reading about it, here's the info:
2008 Bales Mahogany. Everybody knows about the Bales banjos. The saying "Nothing Rings Like a Bales" is true. I purchased it from the original owner and the original bill of sale will accompany the banjo. This has Ronnie's "Turbo Rim" design with Bales tone ring #24 (built by Bill Blaylock).
The craftsmanship is just exemplary on the Bales banjos.
See the September 2013 issue of Banjo Newsletter, "Luthier Ronnie Bales", for a discussion of the development of Ronnie's tone ring and turbo rim. While I had it, I loved showing off the swirled mahogany resonator. It really is beautiful. It's a real prize to have. Bales banjos just don't come available that often.
