Price : US $720.55
This is a new custom made one of a kind Quilted Walnut Minstrel Fretless 5 String Banjo made by Thomas P Jessen from Southern MN. It has a very rich deep plunky tone, currently strung with nylon strings. It is 37' long overall, neck length is 17 3/4' FB only, and 24 1/4' overall. The Peg Head is based on the old scroll design common in Banjos before the Civil War. The pegs are '5-Star' brand tuning pegs. The Banjo Head is a 12' made of Fyber Skin...A plastic that is made to look and sound like animal hide but is much more durable and not affected by changes in the weather. There is a non adjustable steel rod running through the length of the neck. There is no case, however we could certainly offer a good price on a bag or hard case to the winner.
We here at Groth have carried many of Thomas' instruments over the last dozen years and he is a fine maker of high quality instruments generally specializing in mandolins but also making a variety of acoustic instruments including harps, violins, banjos, and other less common folk instruments and some of his own invention.
