Hey all, I’ve recently moved and need to get rid of some things I’ve been holding on to (okay, hoarding.) I have this never fit to a banjo Neat RB-3 Wreath neck. Beautiful light weight mahogany with Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. I bought this neck because the wait for a new one was many months. This is an incredible neck and I was going to put it on my -3 someday, but I already like the neck that’s on that banjo, and need the space, so I need to part with it. $1600 shipped ($1500 for the neck plus $100 for shipping and insurance.)

OMG, that is a beautiful neck. I have a question Gabe.....is there a reason why the tuner holes look a bit rough. Not that it really matters once the tuning pegs are installed. You would never even see it, just asking. Non-the-less it is a beautiful neck, I don't know where Frank gets that rosewood, it is so dark it almost looks like ebony, maybe he darkens it will dye.
I think that's mostly just the lighting and the angles of the pictures making those holes look a little rough, but they're the same as any of the several Neat neck I've had over the years.

Another thought: This neck was never fit to a pot assembly, been fit with tuners, or had the slots cut, so it may be possible that Frank reams the holes out for whatever tuning peg he is using. It is ready to have the heel fit, lag bolts installed and make a really great banjo for somebody.
