I am selling my Stelling Red Fox that I bought new in 1991. I have enjoyed this banjo very much and it has served me well over the years in bluegrass jams and various bluegrass bands. I have migrated to a lighter weight Deering Midnight Special. The Stelling has better tone and volume but we often play 3 hour gigs and I had to switch to a lighter banjo. I installed a Piezo pickup in the Stelling which sounds great with a good equalizer. It can easily be removed if you wish. The Stelling is in excellent playing condition, good action, minimal fret wear, good intonation. No scratches except for the one you can see on the inside edge of the resonator. Fret board has some normal wear but the banjo is ready to hit the stage or jam session as is. Metal is in good shape but could use a polish. Here are some songs I played with the Stelling on some CD's to give you and idea of the tone.

I hate to see her go, but she is ready for a hard driving bluegrass player!
