ONLY LISTING SO I CAN BUY ONE OF THE STELLINGS IN THE CLASSIFIEDS AD WILL BE UP FOR A WEEK OR SO. I will have the banjo with me at IBMA next week if you would like to see it in person. Price is firm and only open to trades for certain Stellings. I have dozens of sales on Reverb as well as Ebay. Happy to provide references.

Here it is, the only Mahogany Top Tension made by Warren Yates. I Purchased this banjo about 6 months ago from Morgan music and have since done a full set up on it with a new Yates bridge and recommended head. Included with purchase will be a set of Yates strings and spare bridge. Original Case and tuner included to boot.

This banjo has the best neck of the Yates i've owned with a slight V shape on the first five frets. The resonator is the standard Yates design and it is intonated properly up and down the neck. The tone is sublime and it is the best Mastertone style banjo i've owned. I just simply want to go back to Stellings for sentimental purposes. Plus I don't want to gig out with this banjo.

The banjo is in like new condition, with only the slightest patina on the unplated nickel parts. The top tension parts were done custom for Yates and the hardware uses Allen keys to adjust.
