Description from Bernunzio's: "A recreation of the 1903 A. C. Fairbanks Whyte Laydie No. 2. It is made directly from an extant example and mimics the original in every way with the exception of geared tuners...The rim is light weight, 3/8" thick and 10-3/4"in diameter. The scale length is 26". All of the materials are as per original with maple neck and rim and ebony fingerboard."

This banjo was purchased new circa 2014 and has been used sparingly in performance and recording. Sounds great with nylon strings and skin head, but currently strung for loudness with light-gauge steel strings and renaissance head. The instrument is in perfect condition and there is zero fret wear. For sale at an attractive price because the metal screws holding my spine together are telling me I need to play lightweight instruments. Case and additional skin head (as seen in video) included. Funky armrest seen in picture, not included.

This is an excellent and versatile instrument. Read a detailed review of the banjo by BHO member Joel Hooks.
