Great lot of thirteen (13) vintage banjo necks (three 5 string , nine 4 string and one 8 string mandolin banjo neck) and three vintage rims / pots (two 11'' diameter and one 10.5'' diameter), seven of the necks with dowel sticks still attached, conditions vary greatly, probably the best of the lot is a Gariepy tenor neck with original Gariepy sales tag on back of peghead, binding, neck laminations and block inlays. One long neck 5 string banjo neck and two additional 5 string necks, one might possibly be a Framus (stamped ''Made in USSR occupied Germany'' or something to that effect), the 5 string necks and the Gariepy neck are set up for truss rods and not dowel sticks. Photos tell the story, two of the necks have vintage friction tuners and buttons (eight total) and two of the necks have had the fretboards cut away (4th & 5th from left). Some have heel carving and veneer laminations etc., missing inlays or wood, various nicks, scratches etc., all items are sold as is and priced accordingly. The rims / pots consist of one re-finished birdseye maple wood 2-ply rim 10.5'' diameter & 1/2'' thick with built in beveled tone ring and two full spun thin rims (approximately 3/8'' thick) measuring 11'' in diameter.
Nothing fancy & nothing new, but some nice items for possible restoration for you banjo luthiers out there, I'm cleaning out the garage and thinning down my projects, p
