This pre-owned Chanterelle Whyte Laydie is a wonderful homage to classic early 20th century Fairbanks banjos. Banjo builder, Mike Ramsey, did wonderful work and artfully infused Old Work designs with modern craftsmanship. This particular custom banjo has a 12" maple pot with nickel hardware and some lovely fingerboard and peghead inlays. The tea-stained goat skin head was an u[grade made byt he previous owner and lends a warmer, pluckier tone to what is ordinarily a bright sounding banjo. The mahogany neck also hearkens back to vintage instruments with a more pronounced V profile.
