  •  Listing something unusual and quite unique is what I can best describe as a custom hand built or purpose built instrument for a particular player who sadly is no longer with us, approx 20+ years ago.
    Although no makers mark or any indication of when or who it was built by other than the Elton stamped arm rest.
    Obviously very good quality parts and materials went into this build.  Can be used as a 5 or 6 string banjo.
    Being offered at a very reasonable and attractive price.
    I will do my best to describe this instrument.
    ATTENTION Experienced and knowledgeable BANJO PLAYERS,
    your input and comments are very much welcomed to determine any helpful information on 6th tuning peg feature.

  • 5 piece laminated neck, Mahogany, ebony, maple
