Exc(+) original condition. This banjo shows only the slightest signs of prior ownership. Head is slightly worn, armrest slightly discolored, and resonator shows a few slight small marks here and there. No fret wear!
Only 25 banjos of the official run were made. Mahogany neck and resonator with Flat Rosewood fingerboard. White bindings around top and back edge of resonator and along fingerboard. Concentric wh/blk/wh circles in back of resonator. Double-cut peghead with variation of “Flying Eagle” pearl inlay in headstock and fingerboard. Railroad spikes on 7th & 9th frets. Nickel hardware, including Keith “Standard” main 4 tuning pegs, with Schaller 5th – all with matching ivoroid buttons. Burlile un-plated flathead tone ring mounted on “old factory floor” 3-ply Maple rim. 1-pc pot metal flange. Presto tailpiece. Banjo construction and rim authenticity are documented inside the banjo, along with Kenny Ingram’s endorsement of the banjo. These banjos are specifically planned and dialed-in 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.
Comes with good HC.
