Hi. I think this banjo rim will bring a smile to the new owners face. This is a very unique old banjo pot assembly from approx 1910 - 1920. Polished brass spun over wood rim with nickel plated brass adjustable archtop tone ring that weighs approx 2 lbs itself. The tone ring has 4 adjusting bolts for lowering or raising the head. It has a heavy grooved tension hoop holding the new 11'' Elite head which is made to look like calfskin.The dowel stick is also adjustable for neck angle This is a very heavy rim that weighs approx 7 lbs and likely 9 - 10lbs after you add a neck. It has Guckert Duplex stamped on tone ring. This is apparently the same fellow that published all those banjo and mandolin chord books back in the early teens and 20's. I have added a picture of one of his books but the book is not included. I wish I had a neck for it so that I could make it complete but I do not so I am offering it for sale as seen in the pictures. It rings like a bell and has lots of volume when you snap the 11'' head and think it would be a great sounding banjo. I will include the painted but usable old calfskin that was on it if you want it. I do not know what else to add to the description so I am putting up lots of pictures. If you have any questions, I would be more than happy to try answer them.
Shipping from North Dakota will be a flat rate of $13 anyplace in the lower 48 states. Canadian address will be $17 and can send from Manitoba so that you can avoid custom delays. I ask that
