I put this banjo together by using the resonator and all the metal parts minus the rim and neck attachment hardware from what I could discern to be an unused Recording King pot. I replaced the thin rim with a nice 3 ply 3/4" maple rim. The tone ring is a 5/16" round steel rod. The banjo sounds good and plays easy. Plenty of volume and sustain. Removing the resonator and flange and you have a very nice sounding open back too. You can listen to some bluegrass picking on this banjo by me by clicking on the link below.

The 3 ply laminate neck was crafted by me and stained to match the pot. It has the standard 26 1/4" scale. String action is 3 mm above the 12th fret using a 5/8" bridge. Neck to pot fit is tight and secure. It has new planetary tuners.

The banjo weighs in at 8 lbs. There is no case, but the banjo will be packed carefully and shipped insured via USPS Retail Ground. Message me with any questions and I will answer them promptly.
