Here's a really nice old time banjo I have on consignment. A ca 2005 Mike Ramsey Fairbanks Electric.
Price Reduced to $1350!!
This banjo is in nicely maintained, well played condition and shows a few light scratches (most notably on the heel, as pictured) and some moderate oxidation on the tension hoop and some of the treble side hooks. Currently set up with a medium action (about 5/32" at the 12th fret) and a handmade walnut bridge marked "11/16 Crowe Walnut 5" on the feet. It's got railroad spikes at the 7th, 9th, and 10th frets.
Scale length is 25.63"
Nut width is 1 5/16"
Neck is a two piece Mahogany laminate with a thin ebony centerstrip.
Fingerboard and Peghead overlay are Ebony
Hand Engraved pearl inlays are beautifully done. A few dots of inlay filler have come out around the 10 and 12th fret inlays but it poses no functional issue and you have to look for them to find them. I tried to take a picture that shows them.
Ships in a deluxe TKL case with red velvet interior. Shipping to lower 48 is $50, Alaska and Hawaii contact for a quote.
