This is basically a new JBS mahogany flathead built by Arthur Hatfield. This particular banjo has not been on the market until now. It is in near mint condition other than a few spots of minor finger prints and patina on the nickel. These banjos were originally $3950 so this is a killer deal.
These are tremendous banjos to say the least. In my opinion, the two best things are the Jerry Sloan (JBS) flathead tone ring and the fact that Arthur put it together. Jerry's rings are among the best available and in my personal top five that I prefer. The hard rock maple block rim and ring combo make for a powerful flathead. The quilted mahogany resonator is beautiful (sorry the pics don't do it justice). The banjo has 5th string spikes at 7, 8, 9, and 10th frets. Ships in its new OHC.
If you have any questions about this banjo, don't hesitate to ask.
