Bart Reiter Whyte Laydie banjo

In very good condition with no nicks or dings, some faint cracking of the lacquer finish on the back of the head due to age, the inlay on the head was gold, but underneath is mother of pearl. Unfortunately, I will be keeping the case which is why price is lower than what you will find from a dealer.
I am the second owner and played on it only a handful of times over the past 10 years. Has spent 95% of it's time in a case in a bedroom. This banjo is out of production and is becoming increasingly more difficult to find. Sounds and feels beautiful and deserves to be with someone who will appreciate it.
Please email with any questions and check out the photos for more details. Thanks.
