11” 3 ply maple pot, regular scale, Dobson tone ring/heel/Cole peg head/ man in the moon / stars inlays/ goat skin head/partial fretless-brass. Fantastic build. Sound is loud and clear. Lindsay is building a great banjo.

No setup changes needed. Perfect action. May experiment with different bridges, but the Sosebee on it now is great.
