Warren Yates Tenor Banjo

Price: $2,000.00 USD

For sale is a tenor banjo made by Warren Yates, of Hickory, NC. Warren builds some of the best 5-string banjos currently being made. This is the only tenor banjo he has ever made, and likely ever will make. He actually advised me to keep it because of its rarity, but I would rather see it being used. I had it built in 2007 and played it for several months before leaving the state for a few years. I left the banjo in NC, and for various reasons, have not picked up playing again. It is in like new condition, with the exception of the goat skin head…details below.

Quilted maple resonator, curly maple neck, rosewood fretboard, custom camphor burl pegboard (I sent Warren the wood), gold plated hardware, custom wood tone ring by Warren for a nice warm sound.

The head is natural goat skin. I took all the tension off when I moved, but unfortunately a small crack in the goat skin has started, so the head will need to be replaced.

Asking $2300, but reasonable offers will be considered. Comes with the pictured hardcase.
