mike hedrick custom 5 string banjo w/TKL case
well for the ones familiar with mike hedrick you know he is one of the best banjos builders out there! and this is just one fine example of his work,not only is this a gorgeous piece of art but is also an awesome playing and sounding banjo!..mike is the one whom supplied first quality music with the wood for the old growth rims!this banjo was built for Travis Tritt for a show he was going to be doing involving the use of this banjo in that show ,but by a streak of bad luck the banjo was stolen right after its completion and before being delivered to Travis...after years of eluding the public the banjo was finally recovered and returned to mike,....this banjo is truly a work of art and was built using first quality parts...it is gold plated with the kings crown engraving pattern...you can visit raymerstudio.com to see some of the old first quality engraving patterns also featuring this pattern "kings crown" ...the banjo has hand inlayed resonator screws w/pearl & abaloni inlays! ...the rim is a old growth rim from sullivan....the ring is a first quality cryogenic ring...the neck and reso are maple with multiple coats of white/clear laquer...it has the "legends" inlayed at the 21rst fret symbolizing the bluegrass greats the show was about... miraculously the banjo survided its uninvited journey and after a good cleaning and set-up is ready for pickin......I would consider interesting trades on maybe yates rs distressed ... a nechville xxv,nechville phantom galaxy,Gibson style 6 checkerboard or top tension..a nice great lakes top tension. or maybe something else in an upper line banjo..i would also consider trading this for a nice 40' conex storage container.....the banjo is pictured in a calton case but will be in the TKL shown in the pictures...so if you have anything of interest just shoot me a message,thanks.
