     These special banjos, specifically made to sound very close to pre-war Mahogany flatheads. This is a fine professional banjo made with a high level of skill and top key components that shows only moderate use. Greg says - this banjo has wonderfully solid 4th string, and the high "D" string is not "metallic" and shrill at all. Really great sound with lots of power.

Williams "Kenny Ingram" No 20 1 Buy Williams "Kenny Ingram" No 20 1 2008 Williams "Kenny Ingram" No 20 Banjo 'In Stock'

     Exc.(+) Condition. Only has slight signs of prior ownership. Head shows some wear. Neck and frets are both in great shape. Slight area of button marring on back of resonator. "Zero-glide" nut has been professionally installed.
     Bound Mahogany resonator with two concentric circles. Cream binding on rosewood fingerboard. Jim Burlile tonering, Maple "old-floor" 3-ply rim. Mahogany neck. Flat Rosewood fingerboard with elaborate pearl inlays. Keith standard tuning pegs with Ivoroid buttons. Schaller 5th with matching Ivoroid button. Railroad spikes on 7th & 9th frets.
     These limited run banjos (only 25 were made), were designed and 'dialed-in' to perform with the tone and timbre of pre-war RB-3 and RB-75 Mahogany flathead banjos of the 1930's. All the key parts are not only top notch, but were thoughtfully fit and mated for tonal performance... and it works. The player is rewarded with a very strong resonant banjo, with great presence, a growly, fuzzy sound when playing slides, and a sure attack when hitting the string with your pick.
