**FOR SALE: Rickard Resophonic Banjo in Exc. to Near-Mint Cond. -- $2,295 plus Shipping**

I purchased this five-string resophonic steam-punk dream directly from Rickard Banjos back in 2019, and I've had many enjoyable hours playing on it. It's in excellent-to-near-mint condition and exhibits little or no wear to the long-wearing EVO gold frets and fingerboard. Also, there are absolutely no scratches, dents, or gouges of any kind to the finish, and likewise to the brass hardware.

But unfortunately, and the reason I've been selling off my collection of 5-strings and various guitars, is arthritis and peripheral neuropathy have taken their toll on my hands, leaving me with little ability to play. The remainder of my banjos have been set aside and will be handed down to family members in the hopes that one or more of them will carry on the banjo tradition.

This resophonic banjo is the very last hold-out of the instruments I've owned and deemed appropriate for sale; I was on the fence for many months with this one before finally deciding to allow another 5-string picker have a chance at owning it. The sale price of $2,295 (plus $195 shipping) is ridiculously low for an instrument of this quality, in this condition, and considering that a new Rickard Resophonic currently sells for a hefty $3,495. (See the "More Info URL" link below for additional info on this make/type banjo.)
