2013 Waldman Banjo 12" Cherry Wood-O-Phone Fretless

Photo for Ad 158242

Gryphon sold this Waldman when new several years ago, and while it's clearly seen some use there is absolutely no fret wear! (little joke there, sorry). But seriously, you can spot some scuffing to the head on either side of the strings up near where the neck joins the rim, and there are a few shallow finish dings to side of the neck heel. The brass parts of aged gracefully, which of course is what the builder intended. Chuck Waldman's Wood-O-Phone models are always popular here at Gryphon and this one's a bargain. Gig bag included.

Acoustic guitars, mandolins, and banjos are still the mainstays at Gryphon, as they have been for over 45 years, though our inventory of steel guitars and ukuleles continues to grow as well. In recent years an important part of our growth has been in instruments by very small companies and individual makers, as we continue to keep one foot, or at least several toes, outside the mainstream music industry.
