Crafted from all new parts. The Black Limba wood came from a single piece, so the neck and rim match perfectly. Black walnut was used for the peghead ears and for the rim cap. The banjo is all set up and ready to play. You can listen to me playing this banjo in the clawhammer style by clicking on the link below.
The neck has standard 26 1/4" scale. There is a 1/4" non adjustable steel rod embedded under the fretboard. The fretboard and peghead overlay are rosewood. The fretboard inlay dots are abalone. The string action is 3mm above the 12th fret. Width of the fretboard is 1 1/4" at the nut and 1 7/8" at the end.
The rim is block constructed. A top frosted Remo head sits on top of a 3/16 round steel rod that serves as a tone ring. Medium light gauge strings sit on a 5/8" bridge. The is no case, but the banjo will be packed carefully and shipped insured. The banjo weighs in at 5.5 lbs.
