Hi, and Thanks for looking at my ad.
They don't make this model any more, but if you have been looking for one, this one is in Mint Condition, and played little if any.
The only change from original, is I put one of my Clawhammer Special 100 Year Old Clawhammer Special Bridges with the raised 5th string on it, which really improves the tone, and ease of playing. The original bridge will be included.
Below is what Recording King had to say about the banjo.
The California Deluxe has original detailing and a sweet open back tone players love. Select ebony graces the fretboard, the heel cap and the peghead overlay for extra-fine craftsmanship. The unique peghead inlay was designed by Greg Rich and features a traditional floral pattern. The Deluxe also features a Whyte Laydie tone ring, a bound walnut rim, a walnut neck with a maple skunk stripe and a no-knot tailpiece. This model has dual coordinator rods, 24 brackets and nickel-plated hardware. The original peghead inlay features binding for greater strength. The California Deluxe is a great banjo for frailing or clawhammer style banjo playing. With its unique detailing and graceful craftsmanship, this model revitalizes the Recording King legacy. A very nice soft case is included with this sale.
