Vintage 1960's Fender Artist Banjo

Photo for Ad 138167

This is an early vintage Fender Artist from the late 60's that has exceptional clarity and volume. If you like the sound of Bill Emerson’s old Fender on early recordings and you want to stand out from the crowd you’ll like this one. It has probably the quickest/fastest neck I've ever played, almost effortless, like playing a Strat. All original except for head, two tuners, bridge and one thumbscrew (this one has the early rounded ones) and one was replaced with a later flat top vintage thumbscrew. Everything is chrome plated and there is some pitting and armrest wear (see pics) but otherwise in fine playing condition for a 50 year old banjo. Frets good and has spikes installed. Not sure if case is original or not but looks the part. A real piece of nostalgia from the heyday of Newgrass/Bluegrass.
