Used Yates Skillet Head Banjo- Semi Distressed Finish- Rosewood Fingerboard- Mahogany Resonator- TKL Hard Case

Warren Yates is making some of the best banjos out there today. He is meticulously involved in every aspect of production. If your looking for that great pre-war sound without spending the pre-war bucks, this is the perfect banjo for you. The finish and hardware were mildly distressed by Warren. It will ship in a very nice TKL hard shell case.
Finish is “Semi-Distressed” for that early 1950s look and, feel.
