Once you play a scalloped fingerboard you will NEVER want to play a standard fingerboard again. It has a lovely tone and it can play loud and clear. I started building this banjo about seven years ago and only recently finished it. Any inspection is fine with me but you will have to contact me and somehow arrange it. Will be supplied with a soft carry bag.
