Description

This is a custom Kel Kroydon and what makes it custom is there is no art design on the back of the resonator.  That is original.  This banjo has a material that many call Mother of Toilet Seat because it has an appearance much like Mother of Pearl.  The fretboard is rosewood and has a Seagull inlay pattern.  The headstock on the conversion neck also has mother of toilet seat and includes the Gibson logo.

All of the hardware is new Prucha hardware with the exception of the armrest.  Prucha is making the best 5 string banjo hardware anywhere and is used by a lot of serious builders.  This has a Huber Vintage Tone Ring.  The neck was made by Greg Harmon and this is definitely professional quality.  This is one of the best conversion necks I've seen!!!  The neck is walnut.

This banjo was originally ordered by a school system which is an interesting piece of history.  This is a rare and really attractive banjo that has been converted with incredible parts.  This also includes a hardshell case.

Condition

The banjo is in gorgeous and is in fantastic condition.  Most of the parts on this are new so that is a big part of why it is so clean.  The original resonator is very clean still.  There is some light scratching on the side which is pictured.  Overall the resonator looks incredible.  In fact this is one of the most clean Kel Kroydon resonators Ive seen.  All of the hardware looks great.  The neck and fretboard are both clean and this has clean frets.  There are spikes at the 7th and 9th frets.  This is a gorgeous banjo that also has a clean hardshell case.

Set Up

This has been professionally set up at the Banjo Warehouse.  This has a new Huber frosted head by Remo.  The head has been set to 90 on a drum dial.  This has a Huber bridge with a rosewood cap and new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings.  The neck is straight and this has nice action that is adjustable.  The banjo sounds incredible.  This also has correct intonation.

This is the perfect banjo for a vintage Gibson Banjo collector or anyone that wants a rare and attractive banjo.  Check out my store for more Gibson Banjos for Sale than any store on earth!!!
