White Mountain Banjo - $875 OBO

Built by Ron Grimsley, original owner of White Mountain Banjos, for the 2010 Bluegrass Festival season. It has a fancy 7 piece maple and black walnut neck with a carved heel. There is a multi piece hardrock maple rim. open back make it suitable for frailing. There are double coordinator rods. I put upgrade planetary ivoroid tuners on it. It has a white mylar Deering head with the Pete Seeger motto in coloured letters: This Machine Surrounds Hate and Forces it to Surrender. I also had a custom made ebony and abalone arm rest installed and a truss rod cover made with a paddle wheeler steamboat inset. I currently have it tuned down with low gauge strings for the baritone register. This can easily be restrung back to lighter gauge strings and more common open G tuning. It was my answer to converting a standard banjos to a baritone. It has lots of tone and projection and in either register. It is the grandkids favorite with all of its sparkle and fancy appointments. I have had it since 2011 and it has been well maintained and kept in its case and played occasionally.
