Price reduced from original $2425 to $2225 - Balch head and Lakota strap extra.

Offering this Rickard 12" Dobson custom spunover purchased in September 2015 from Music Emporium. I bought the banjo inspired to mimic John Herrmann who has a very similar instrument made for him by Bill Rickard. I must now admit the time required to achieve that goal is beyond what my myriad interests allow, so here is your chance at a great banjo that languishes in my possession.

25.5" scale; 1 3/8' nut; maple pot stained black with brass spunover, brass hardware; 12" Dobson tone ring; slotted headstock (a price updgrade at Rickard), beefy neck with "Dobson-style' heel. Currently fitted with a John Balch 4star calfskin head $75 value (will include the original Renny head). Pictures show a 2" blonde Lakota Leathers cradle strap ($50 value). (Update: OHSC included of course)

The instrument retailed at $2889 when I bought it. A new one from Rickard is now $2950 (
There is a video link there. You likely do NOT want to hear me play!

If you are not aware, shipping costs have skyrocketed over the last year or so. I have shipped several banjos and guitars over the years and take pride in doing it well.
