1994 Bart Reiter Whyte Laydie. I have had this banjo for a number of years and it has been stored in the closet and only taken out on rare occasion. I do not exaggerate when I state that it is in near mint condition (BHO does not offer “near mint” as an option). Photos cannot show the near pristine condition of this instrument.
The metal work shows only VERY minor oxidation. The base of the rim is 99.99999% perfect. The side of the rim is 100% perfect. The neck is 99.9999% perfect. The original frets show about 5-10% usage with only 2 or 3
VERY shallow dimples on the1st and 2nd fret, they have never been dressed or altered. The peghead face has one lacquer check (NOT into wood) that is noticeable. The peghead edges are at 99% perfect with only 2 very minor areas visible under very close inspection but… you have to really be looking closely. As seen in the photos, it has been outfitted with amber tuner buttons that are very attractive.
It will ship with hard case and arm rest that I have never mounted on the banjo.
In summary, this banjo offers a VERY unique opportunity to own a 28 year old Bart Reiter banjo from perhaps his best period of production. It is a beautiful example of modern banjo craftsmanship in a state of preservation that is exceptionally rare.
