Essentially a new banjo, but with "railroad spikes" added to the fingerboard (so you don't need a 5th string capo), some scratches to the back of the resonator, and some very light tarnish to the nickel plated parts. This model is no longer in production (only a mahogany version is now offered) and the curly maple neck and resonator are very nice. Comes with the original case.
