This Grand Promenade banjo was crafted by Bob Flesher and it’s one of the loveliest banjos we’ve offered in a long time. The neck is made of select figured maple and it has an extended back strap down to the fourth fret position. The heel carving is inspired by the work found on S.S.Stewart’s presentation grade instruments. The fingerboard, peghead, back strap and heel cap are all inlaid and elegantly engraved with a classic floral pattern of the 1890's and this is some of the nicest engraving we’ve seen. The Kershner tailpiece, tension hoop, as well as the inside shoe bolt cover band are profusely engraved and nickel plated. This banjo has a 12-inch head with an ebony tone ring tone ring. It's in excellent cosmetic and structural condition. Includes the original hardshell case.
