Open Back 11" 5 String Banjo
Price: $275.00 USD
A "frankenstein banjo", that is, put together from used and new parts. The banjo is all set up and ready to play. The banjo sounds good in multiple styles of playing. You can listen to this banjo being played by me by clicking on the link below.
Here are the banjo specifics:
New Golden Gate aluminum rim with all new hooks, nuts, hex lugs and tail piece. The tension hoop is vintage and also the pre-epa Weather King head.
The vintage neck (circa 1960/70's) was probably made in Japan. The neck has been refinished. It has all new tuners. The neck has a long scale (27 1/4"), no fret wear, is straight and notes true up and down the neck. The string action is 3 mm above the 12th fret. A "railroad spike" has been added to the 7th fret for easy tuning while capoing. Medlium light gauge steel strings sit on a 5/8" bridge.
The banjo weighs in at 6 lbs. There is no case, but the banjo will be packed carefully and shipped insured via UPS ground.
Shipping: UPS retail ground based on US zip code.
