NEW FINGERBOARD by CUSTOM
NEW PEGHEAD OVERLAY by CUSTOM PEARL INLAY
Binding - Fretting
Will install a 20 fret since I have room, I'm running a small extension
New skin head installed
Tension Lock attached to hoop
Going together with Tyler's banjo which has a new neck design refinished to match his rim.
Both are running "Neck and Neck" to the finish line.
Time to string it up and see what she can do.
After some adjustments I have found a good action and a great voice on this skin.
It's a reactive head and transfers sound VG.
The Tension Lock tailpiece transfers the downforce I require in my setups and the 27/32 Farquhar is the choice for this elevated fingerboard
Now to let it settle in and I'll keep dialing it in.
Now it can be a good banjo for someone with a fresh new
Plays well up and down with a nice bright tone on single string and in chords
Good 2nd and 3rd position tone with great note separation.
Of course there are many setups one can try for other voices.
I'm so proud that my cousin Anna had a wish to own it, and keep a piece of the Mondello musical history for her own.
"Your cousin Vinnie"
