Seeders 12” Mahogany Custom


We sold this incredibly striking 12" Mahogany banjo from Vermont's Will Seeders exactly a year ago. The original buyer, who decided he wasn't devoting enough time to the banjo, has traded it back -- and are we ever glad to have it again! Not only is this a fabulous opportunity for anyone interested in snagging one of Will's banjo's ... on a superficial level, this is probably the best looking banjo we've ever had in the shop! Features include a Honduran Rosewood tone ring under a stained calfskin head, black & white ebony inlays, and the overlays of figured Ziricote. The other thing you'll notice about this banjo when you pick it up is its lightness--there's only a carbon fiber rod in the neck, which keeps the sound nice and airy. If you're an old-time banjo player looking for something unique with phenomenal tone to spare, you couldn't do any better. With its original Superior hard case.
