I have decided to let this banjo go. I put this banjo together in 2015 with high quality parts. I have played numerous dates with this banjo and recorded with it. Originally this banjo had a Burlile tone ring but I replaced it with an un-plated Blaylock. The neck was an original (new old stock) "Blackjack" from First Quality that was headed to Gibson, but of course Gibson Banjo shut down in May 2010. I had Robin Smith take "Blackjack" out and put "Mastertone" in the Mastertone block. Robin did all the assembly/fit/finish and it turned out great. The fret wear is very minimal. The parts are as follows:
-Gibson Mahogany "Blackjack" Inlay Neck
-Gotoh Tuners, 5 Star 5th tuner
-Prucha & American Made Banjo Hardware
-Blaylock Unplated 20-hole Flathead Tone Ring
-Huber Engineered Rim 3-Ply Maple
-Gill "Prewar Style" Mahogany Style 3 Resonator

This banjo ships in a Gator hard case and has 5th string spikes at 7 thru 10th frets. If Interested I can text a video to a smartphone until I get a video posted. Sorry NO TRADES...The price is FIRM
