On hold, L&H 6 string (5+1) Banjo w/Case
Price: $600.00 USD
I don't see a maker's mark but someone will recognize the distinctive headstock and hardware. The pot measures 11 7/8' and the scale is 28". All looks original save the head, bridge, and strings. The case could be the original. The tuners seem to hold well, the neck is straight but many of the frets have been 'flattened'. The action is low (too low, John) with a 1/2" bridge and a small shim at the heel. All told, this banjo is playable now (perhaps restrung and shim removed for high action). The case has a few loose edges that I never got to regluing but it closes solidly.
Please ask for details and any clues as to it's origin will be appreciated.
Thanks to Blake and Bob for confirming this banjo as a Lyon & Healy
