Banjo For Sale Made from off the shelf parts
For a player looking for that older Gibson
look without the cost.
Gibson Style Neck- with center laminate Orig cut for OPF which works OK for this tube and plate
rim. Peghead break in the past, has been stable a long time. Spikes installed Resonator, with matching marquetry and finish Arch top rim assembly-unsure of maker Solid tone ring Multi laminate rim Tube and plate flange
Rim was meant for one rod setup so that is what it got.
L bracket for tailpiece
Will install 4 resonator brackets, hook mounted.
Golden Gate tuners, late model Presto, the heavy one with tension
hoop bracket and adjusting screw.
Will find a truss cover around here for it.
I will let it settle in a while to see how it acts, neck is flat
and notes well.
Truss is at zero adjustment.
With the heel cut that is on it, it will only accept 1/2"bridge.
So after I see how it reacts as it settles in I will plan the next
phase which will be taking it back apart and dialing that heel cut
After a couple days its laying nicely, settling in OK. I will plan a fret dressing with that heel adjustment
