R. Brown/Buckbee Conversion

  • Very Good Condition
  • Recent
  • No Case


Great sounding conversion that utilitzed an 11" Richard Brown rim assembly and an old Buckbee neck. The rim was made using mesquite, and features block construction with rolled brass tonering; later notched tension hoop, and repro No Knot tailpiece; setup w/ an old Rogers skin head that sounds great; crown height on head is a bit off, so the banjo is setup with a tall (3/4") classical style maple bridge. The mahogany neck has an dyed fingerboard w/ 25" scale length; comfy 1-5/16" wide nut; past tuners were previously installed, currently has Champion friction pegs on box, and geared Gotoh fifth tuner.
