I'm really excited about how this conversion has turned out. This banjo now has a new Sullivan roasted mahogany neck with Granada style inlay and Sullivan conversion ring. This combination has made for an extremely responsive banjo with great tone. The original 40-hole arch top is also included and the rim remains unaltered with the Mastertone label for either configuration. The resonator has just been refinished due to the original finish being streaked with some sort of cleaner. This is still evident in the inside of the resonator but the F.O.N. remains. The hardware is in beautiful condition and has a 1 gold thumbscrew and a gold (prewar) tailpiece bracket. All of the hardware is prewar minus the new-old-stock Gibson tailpiece and armrest. These conversion rings are incredible and give the classic prewar tone without breaking the bank or cutting the rim. 5th string spikes are at the 7th and 9th frets and it ships in a new Superior case. If you need additional pictures or have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
