WHITE SWALLOW OLD TIMEY - Fingerstyle model
(Frailing Scoop - Jarrah Tone Ring, Cedar Neck) - New - Sold

Two experts have worked together to produce this delightful and unique banjo!
Wendy Holman has designed a sensuous new shape! The Fingerstyle 'Lazy S' frailing scoop retains fretmetal at the 1st and 2nd strings (where we need those high notes) but curves away at the bass allowing greater freedom for the frailing thumb.

And when she suggested to craftsman, Alan Funk, that a wooden armrest would be even more comfortable and harmonise with its good-looks, he listened. Then he brought his expertise from suggestion, to drawing board, to this instrument.

The result is unique, earthy, and endearing! ....

Includes hard case and warranty. High build quality, great looks, superb tone and there'll never be another! $1800.00.oz flag Sold

There are many reasons to buy a handmade Prucha banjo.  Above all is the sound.  Pickers trying out a Prucha always remark on the great tone - even when comparing with other major name banjos.  They also compliment the playability.  With Prucha, the closer you look, the closer you listen, the more you like them.

Prucha "Legend" has highly figured maple resonator and neck.  Ivoroid bindings on neck and resonator.  Richly coloured abalone hearts and flowers inlays on fingerboard and headstock.  Ebony fingerboard.  Vintage-style pancake tuners.  Spikes at 7th, 8th ,9th and 10th frets.  Price tailpiece and 5/8 Moon bridge. 

With AVS hard shell shaped case with plush interior.  On Consignment. $4990oz flag Sold

WASHBURN B23 MYSTIC DL - c1970 - PRE-LOVED Sold

Hand-signed by Nagashimi of Japan.   Typical Mystic slim neck front to back with wreaths design feels really good under the hand.  No fret or fingerboard wear (tiny split in the fingerboard from the oversize spike).  Dual co-ordinator rods.  5/8” ply rim, cast tone ring.  Tube and plate flange.  Frosted Remo Weatherskin head.  Kirshner tailpiece.  Spike at 7th fret. 

Reasonable condition, the bad news for collectors - previous owner has hand-varnished the back of the neck and parts of the head stock.  Possible to strip and respray at a later stage.  For now, all it needs is a keen picker to play it in.  Mystics in any kind of playable condition are becoming rare. 

Plus original hard shell case. .oz flag Sold
