'08 YATES "Ron Stewart", dated 9-3-08. Previous owner's documentation (included) indicates that this is the 3rd Ron Stewart model made by Warren Yates to replicate Ron's pre-war style 1, and the one Ron chose to be his own...signing his own resonator (pictured) in addition to the rim label. This was before the relic'd process began on the produced models to follow, so this banjo is one of only very few nickel plated "Stewarts" and in beautiful condition. It was also during the time when Ron began playing frequently with Dan Tyminski, and many tunes were played in A and B keys...the frets are still in very good shape, but a picture of the fret wear on the 4th and 5th frets is included to show the use in the key of Dan's voice.
Fantastic maple speed neck (spikes at 7, 8, & 9) and resonator, entire instrument is original (Yates no-hole flathead ring) with possible exception of the head and of course the strings....and includes the original YATES bridge and redline case. It plays wonderfully, with fabulous cut and power up the neck. There are plenty of Youtube videos of Ron playing with D. Tyminski between Sept. of '08 and 2010, I believe many of which are this banjo. Please contact with questions. I will consider a reasonable offer, and ship promptly. Thank you.
