Bart Reiter's Regent model is one of Gryphon's favorites, as it offers the iconic Whyte Laydie tone ring in an attractive less-is-more package. Bart used to offer this same banjo with an engraved inlay on the headstock, making it like a Fairbanks-by-Vega Whyte Laydie No. 2. Bart called that slightly fancier model a Whyte Laydie, but that inlay was the only difference between his Regent model....so what's in a name? This is exceptionally clean throughout, and all original, with just a tiny bit of fret wear. Comes with the original TKL hardshell case.
