So the infamous Wyatt Fawley Savoy it’s out on the market. Question is how would it play with the fingerboard not being wood? I am probably technically wrong, but it’s MOTS I believe. It’s a beautiful looking banjo, but is it really just a show piece?

I've never noticed anything different, from a playing perspective, with MOTS.

I've always liked this one.

I have a mid 30s tb11 with a 5 string pearloid /mots maple neck made by Clancy Mullins. He was the only one I could find close to me that still works with the pearloid. A lot of banjo makers use an ebony or rosewood finger board, and they look good, but I wanted people to recognize the banjo as an 11 from the fretboard. It plays as well as any of my other banjo’s, I can’t tell the difference
