Mahogany neck, resonator, "Roasted Rim", and "Roasted Wood" bridge. 
Mike's new mahogany banjo that he is playing in this video, is only one month old at the time of this recording. 

"These are the best new banjos designed today. They have the feel, tone and dependability that I feel confident to step on any stage with. I have been playing my Maple "Mike Scott Artist Signature Series Banjo" throughout my tours here in the US, three tours of Israel, Norway, Holland, Scotland, Canada, and Japan, and occasionally on the Grand Ole Opry for nearly ten years and counting since 2007! Thank you Bill Sullivan, Eric Sullivan, Jeff Sullivan... for designing and building my "Mike Scott Artist Model /Signature Series Banjo as well as my new Mike Scott Vintage 35 (V-35) Prototype "Roasted Rim" banjo!"
