Turtle Hill Bluegrass Woodie
Price: $1,325.00 USD
Extreme curly maple wood;
Honey, satin finish;
Tony Pass Lost Timbre rim;
Gotoh tuning machines;
Excellent sound with lighter weight - It weighs 8 lbs.
Spikes at frets 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12.
Small amount of fret wear, nothing serious near the nut
Currently strung with GHS PF150 strings. Extra set will be included.
The only issue (if you can call it that) is there was a sliding 5th string capo on the banjo that has been removed. You can see the fill marks in the side of the binding, but cannot feel them.
Access Hardshell case
Banjo now has a Sosebee .656 bridge instead of the bridge shown in the pictures. I think this improved the sound and the playability
Iíve included a review from Bluegrass Newsletter discussing these banjos. Everything else is the same as the pictures. There's also a good review here on BHO under Turtle Hill Banjos.
Best I can determine it was made in 2006, as were all the Turtle Hill Woody banjos, so there are a limited number of these banjo available.
I love the banjo. I deceived to get a Nechville with a wood tone ring and as most of you know they are pricey. I'm selling this to help fund the Nechville purchase.
Note: I have a video of the banjo being played that would not upload here. If you're serious about the banjo, send me your email and I can send it to you.
$1,275 if purchased for cash in Nashville TN with no return provision.
