I've been selling off nearly all of my herd of instruments and am now down to the short strokes. This 2003 Stelling Merlefest banjo (one per year was made as the grand prize at Merlefest from 1995 to 2013) is in time capsule condition and has been treated as the rare collectible it is. The resonator was signed by Doc Watson at the 2004 festival. Rarely played or out of the case.

Curly maple with custom silver-gray stain. Engraved arm rest and tailpiece. Tony Pass 600 TS rim and original Stelling TKL hard case. Red Fox style abalone maple leaf inlays with an unbelievable headstock inlay of Flattop, the raccoon mascot of Merlefest.
