This is a great parts banjo,the best I've ever had. It has a Robin Smith Force 5 mahogany neck with tunneled 5th,Gotoh tuners with caramel buttons.
The rim is a very nice Oriole that was fitted to the one piece flange and Hatfield tone ring by Arthur himself.
The resonator is a 30s style 00 the arm rest is Nechville. It has a Fults 1934,and the newly installed,and easily removed jazzmaster pickup. No extra holes,it's just held in place with a foam pad. Surprisingly I detected very little loss in volume with the pickup.
I will sell the pot,as is for $1050,or take out the pickup for $1000. that's as far as I'll part on it. The neck,with tuners is another $1000. If you buy the whole banjo for $2000 I'll ship in an Access case which my Nechville came housed in. I will part out the pot.
1.Oriole shoe bracket rim cut for one piece flange and Hatfield tone ring.
2. Hatfield tone ring,not sure of model or number but fit to the rim by Arthur 6 or 7 yrs ago.
3 tb00 30s resonator.
$300 each or take all 3 and I'll leave hardware except tailpiece and arm rest.
I don't like the word monster,but this banjo sounds as good as anything I've ever had. I just need $ for a repair bill.
Shipping and paypal fees to be paid by the buyer.
