This 2010 Bart Reiter Whyte Laydie is a lovely sounding instrument, with the power and crispness of the genuine article (with arguably worlds-better playability).
This model used to be a TME shop favorite when we could get them, so it's nice to have one back in the store (though we don't expect it'll last long at all, given Mr. Reiter's pending retirement).
Overall condition is very nice, though it's been someone's primary instrument: expect to see signs of handling, minor hardware tarnishing, etc.
Priced with hard case, this is an excellent banjo for a player looking to upgrade from a banjo they might've outgrown.
