Frankenstein banjo put together from old, new and refurbished parts. The banjo is all set up and ready to play. I have recorded myself playing this banjo in the clawhammer style. You can listen to it by clicking on the link below. The tune is called Cluck Old Hen.
Rim is block constructed and has all new metal parts. The top frosted head is slightly used, in good condition and sits on a 1/4”‘ round brass tone ring. New medium light steel strings sit on an 11/16”bridge. Tailpiece is a reproduction Van Eps.
The neck is a circa 1950/60's neck with the peghead recut and new ears added. It has a new fretboard and new planetary tuners. New heel cap, peghead overlay, MOP positiond dots, nut added and then refinished. String action is 3 mm above the 12th fret. Notes true up and down the fretboard with a 26 1/4" scale.
There is no case but the banjo will be packed carefully and shipped insured
