No, these photos aren't reversed, this is a rare chance to get a lefty 5-string openback banjo in like-new condition at a bargain price. This popular Gold Tone model has an excellent replica of the classic Vega Whyte Laydie tone ring plus a scooped fingerboard past the 18th fret, allowing your left hand to get well away from the bridge for a more mellow, plunky tone when needed. Although this banjo has an 11 inch head, the relatively short string scale puts the bridge closer to the middle of the head, which also helps avoid an overly pinging tone. All five tuners are geared for easy and accurate tuning. Comes in an excellent gig bag.
