Turtle Hill Woody Banjo (Maple)
Price: $1,500.00 USD
Very nice Turtle Hill Woody. Radiused. Maple neck and resonator. Tony Pass 500TS rim. Silvio Feretti (Scorpion) radiused bridge. New frets, well seated. Bonus: new(ish) Fine Tune Shubb radiused capo (yoke style) will be included ($75 value).
Full disclosure stuff. The neck when I bought this had some radius and fret issues. Luthier, who is excellent with necks, re-radiused fret board and installed all new (pre-radiused) frets along with brand new nut. Plays like butter now. But, in the course of the fretboard job, the edges of a couple of inlays (at 1 and 3) are feathered just a bit at the edges. I have better pictures if you are interested. Probably would not notice if I didnít say anything and imperceptible from a distance. You can see it a bit more on the 3rd fret bass side. Great, like new, neck now with both ends (bridge and nut) brand new. But that is why I will be losing money on this transaction as I am not recouping those charges (or the purchase of the capo or the new Scorpion bridge).
These woodies are not mellow or quiet at all. You will have no problem cutting through. But they still weigh between 8 and 9 pounds and that makes a huge difference.

Price is firm. Comes with HSC, which I think is the kind Goldstar used to use. They are great at cradling the neck and have large boxes. If you want a standard TKL, I will swap out for an additional $75. Pictured strap is not included.
I will refund any difference between shipping charge and actual charge plus Paypal and BHO fees. Will provide receipt with tracking number upon shipment.
Shipping: 120 CONUS (will refund any difference with actual)
