Posted a “Want to Buy” ad for a large-rim Whyte Laydie / Electric.
Somebody’s sitting on one—you know who you are.
Respectfully, we’re not getting any younger so cough it up.
Looking for a Fairbanks/Vega tenor or plectrum with the large size rim (11 13/16”).
If you just have the pot, still interesting. I’ll start with that and hunt down an orphaned neck.
My favorite banjo ever is a 21' whyte laydie big rim with 5 string conversion neck- absolutely killer banjo for any style. It's definitely not for sale!!! Best of luck on your search!
I have a tenor like that
'Bartlett Banjo Mic' 1 hr
'1968 Gibson RB800' 2 hrs
'Unmarked 39 Hook Banjo' 2 hrs
'1926 TB-1 conversion' 4 hrs
