The funny thing is, I have been trying to find the best way to get a classic bluegrass style banjo with a radius fretboard. Been pricing out pots, scouring ads for good necks and looking into what it would take to assemble my own. I am more attracted to the timbre of walnut or mahogany.
I’ve got a Nechville Phantom, mahogany, which I love top-to-toes. Mellow sound, and the radiused neck converted me.
One thing: is the included Snuffy bridge radiused? Nothing mentioned on the GT site other than it is 5/8”. (EDIT: your pix are far superior to the GT site, and I can clearly see the curve of the bridge)
I guess worst case scenario if I get this, I would have a decent neck that I could fit onto another quality pot down the road…

I also have a Nechville Phantom Maple and a Deering Golden Wreath. So i get my modern thing and the classic thing. I just bought the Gold Tone OB-3 "Twanger" w/Radius Fretboard and it is one hot banjo. Very loud, great tone up and down the neck, which is a joy to play with the RF and all. This banjo is a perfect union of the modern and classic. You could also put the Bela Fleck neck on this model and pretty much have the Bela Fleck Gold Tone model.
