This banjo has a curly maple rim, neck and Romero-style armrest, with an ebony fretboard and walnut trim. I will sell the banjo without the armrest for $35 less if it isn’t wanted. This banjo has a Renaissance head on a 12" block rim with a 1/4" round brass tone hoop. The scale length is 25-1/2" and the nut is 1-3/8" wide. The neck has a two way truss rod accessed from the heel, brass dots, EVO fret wire, Gotoh tuners and Corian nuts. I made the Van Eps style tension hoop, the tone hoop, and the dowel stick yoke, the tailpiece, tuners and head came from Smakula Fretted Instruments, and the rest of the hardware came from Balsam Banjo Works. The finish is Tru Oil. There is a brass plate on the dowel stick with the banjo number and such on it. The banjo is currently set up with a tall 5th string nut to raise the 5th to the level of the other strings, but I can shorten the nut so the string rests on the 5th fret if desired. I can also add 5th string spikes for $5 each. If you would prefer a Fiberskyn head I can install one at no extra cost. If you want a case with this banjo I can ship it in a Superior bump case, model CD-1536, for $175. To see a video demonstration of this banjo please follow the link below:
