This banjo is nearly 100 years old but looks and plays like brand new.  An Irish player's dream!  It is straight as an arrow and includes an original threaded brass insert dovetailed into the neck heel for rigidity.  It also includes brackets set into the rim, a tastefully unique and eye-catching patent from this era, which brings added rigidity to the shell.  A solid and great sounding banjo!
