The peg head tuners are vintage pancake tuners and the fifth string tuner is a Gotoh. All five buttons are ebony wood. The head is a Fibreskin and the bridge is a Snuffy Smith 11/16" making the action at the 12th fret 1/8" The inlay pattern, based on the early Fairbanks Whyte Laydie No 2 banjo, is hand cut inlayed and engraved.
