This is a fun one. Modeled after the Birdie Brightling HCD in Tsumura's 1001 Banjos (see picture), this is an original Dobson whose neck was damaged in shipping (the all-too-typical peghead joint break) . Colin Vance rebuilt it with the metal overlay and fretboard and the rest of the banjo is designed after the Brightling. Plays and sounds fantastic. Five Star Tuners, 11" pot. Comes with Gig Bag

Great stained head, original tailpiece, strikeplate, 5 Star tuners with amber buttons


United States, New Orleans, LA, 70118
