Very nice! Would the neck be cherry-ebony-maple-ebony? The different layers of wood look beautiful

Hi Mike, I honestly don't know what the woods of the neck are ,although ebony sounds right for one as there 's no sign of wear whatsoever on the fingerboard.  The neck is very plain with only the position dots but I think it looks good and the brass coloured shoes look great.All in all I am delighted with it , oh and before I forget ,I also like the sound of it.

Lovely banjo!

Hi Alan, it's a super banjo,  been trying to find out what woods the neck is made from ,Mike was asking, also just wondering about the strings,want to buy a similar set just in case.

Now as to performance. I am practicing playing three of Grimshaws exercises :-)  but havn't yet played them through without a mistake :-(  however, just as soon as I am satisfied with the video I will post it ,  I promise.Ooooo what have I said.....

Sylvia, I'm not sure about the woods in the rim either.

 

The strings are Clifford Essex "Rob MacKillop" gut strings:  http://www.cliffordessex.net/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=16  

 

Quite expensive but sound great.
