Why, oh why did Recording King stop making this banjo?  It checks all of the boxes for a well-made, affordable, Whyte Laydie-style banjo with appointments you don't find much these days: a bound ebony fingerboard, ebony overlay with beautifully detailed inlay on the bound headstock, better-quality walnut, and dual coordinator rods.  This banjo even includes a deluxe TKL hardshell case in wonderful condition.  Originally purchased here at our shop, and just professionally inspected and set up here by Karl.  Almost no fret-wear, straight neck, wonderful action, ready to play.
