$ 625.00
Ca. 1896. Basic early model from era before the advent of the classic Stewart peghead design. Neck and rim assembly from different banjos of same model, except replacement neck is longer scale than the original (which was irreparably damaged). Spun-over metal-clad rim assembly with original L-shoes and round hooks. Five nuts are matching Stewart-style reproductions from Rickard banjos. Mylar Renaissance head, reproduction no-knot tailpiece. The replacement cherry neck was bowed and had to be planed flat and height added back to heel. New rosewood fretboard matching original faceplate, high quality vintage friction pegs. Professionally reconditioned, set up and guaranteed 90 days for structural integrity and playability by luthier-owner. Currently strung with light-gauge strings. Sweet tone! No case included.
