Yes,
I built this one several years ago. It has fanned frets, a maple rim with integral wooden tonering. I'm thinking that the neck walnut & maple with a wenge fingerboard. I'll look up the fella that owns it and pass that along to you.

that is very close to what im building ! just shows that its hard to get an original idea without going full circle. fan frets hurt my head ! do you get string stretch on the 5th when tuning ?

It was no problem. The base scale is 26 3/8 and the treble is 25 or 25 1/2 (as I recall) so the 5th. is about average. What this gave was a banjo that tuned perfectly and had sweeter trebles and stronger and more robust bass. It really evened out the tone a lot.
