This lovely 12" Cherry banjo from luthier Ryan Navey's Carolina Banjo Co. has just come back to us on trade! Calling it "used" almost seems misleading, since it looks virtually unplayed and appears just as it did when we first sold it. Here's what we said back then:
"TME is happy to be stocking the gorgeous handmade banjos from North Carolina native, Ryan Navey (aka The Carolina Banjo Company). Mr. Navey's banjos add some welcome diversity to our banjo inventory, and would be a great choice for anyone interested in a warmer, Roundpeak-style old-time voice. The beautiful 12" banjo, made from figured cherry and rosewood trim, shows off Navey's artistry (clearly, these banjos aim to please the eye and the ear -- and we'd say they're a big success). Lovely block rim construction, Dobson tone ring, hide head, carved neck heel and peghead veneer."
And we still stand by it! If you're looking for a chance to grab a Carolina Banjo at a bit of a discount, snap this one up while we've still got it.
