An all original circa 1930's Supertone arch top banjo pot with a newly crafted 5 string neck. The pictures tell the tale. You can also hear an old time tune played on this banjo by going to my BHO music page, scroll down to the "Durang's Hornpipe", click on and listen. The banjo is played with the resonator off as an open back. The banjo plays easy and with a rich sound whether played with resonator on or off.
Here are some specifics. The banjo can be converted to an open back by the removal of one screw on the back of the resonator
The walnut pot is 11" wide and 9/16" thick. The detachable resonator with integral flange is 12 3/4" wide and 1 1/4" tall. It attaches to the pot via a single bolt through the center of the back and screws into a clamp on the wooden dowel stick. (SEE PICS). Only a few small dings are present on the back of the resonator. The metal parts are all bright with the exception of a few hooks that show some tarnish. The calf skin head is original and in great condition. New parts added are the tailpiece, 1/2" bridge and light gauge steel strings.
The neck was crafted from three laminations of walnut (2) and pecan (1). The MOP inlayed fretboard came from a like new broken Fender Concertone 5 string neck. Scale is 26 1/4". The neck has new planetary tuners and attaches to the rim via the wooden dowel stick and original neck attachment hardware. String action is 3 mm above the 12th fret.
