Hello fello banjo lovers,

Well it breaks my heart to put this banjo up for sale. It is truly a work of art. I commissioned this banjo with Dan Knowles about 7 years ago and Dan built it for me over a period of 3.5 years. The pictures will tell the story and uniqueness of this banjo but here are a few details. The neck was made from the last piece of needle grain maple from a special board that Dan had at the time. The rock maple, Rickard Spunover rim with Whyte Laydie ring was the starting pint for his magic and aging techniques. The neck shape and feel is absolutely amazing and the finish with ebony back strap is stunning. Dan was a friend of John Hartford and ran with a concept for this aged banjo. A truly stunning looking and sounding banjo that should definitely be in a collection but payed always! If you want a piece of Dan Knowles one-of-a-kind work and history this banjo is it. There will never be another like it. It is in mint condition and the set up is spot on. Please buy with confidence. I always give an evaluation and return period. The banjo comes with the original hard shell case.
