Description

This is a Vintage Fender Leo Banjo that has some custom inlay work. The word Bud is inlaid on the truss rod cover and on the neck block so I am assuming this was once owned by someone named Bud. It could also be someone who smoked Bud or maybe someone who considered this banjo their Bud. Whatever the case may be this is the Bud Custom Banjo.

This has a thick multiply maple shell with a mahogany neck and resonator. Except for an upgraded Waverly tailpiece the hardware is all original and includes a 2 piece chrome flange and 20 hole Mastertone style tone ring.

The fretboard is rosewood and features some custom inlay work that is only on this Bud Custom Banjo. This is actually a pretty interesting piece. This has 2 original tuners and 2 Schaller D Tuners. This also includes a Washburn Hardshell Case.

Condition

This banjo is in good shape and also has been cleaned at the Banjo Warehouse. All of the hardware has been buffed and the wood waxed. There is some light pitting in the metal but overall it’s clean. There is some wear on the back of the resonator but also overall it’s clean. The fretboard is clean and has been oiled and the frets are in good shape. There are spikes at the 7th and 9th frets. The case has some wear but no structural issues.

Set Up

This has been set up at the Banjo Warehouse. This has a new Remo frosted head which has been set to 90. The bridge is set with correct intonation. The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and this plays GREAT!!! For $749 it will be hard to find a better banjo, especially with Free Shipping.
