Rarely seen five string banjo by William H. DeWick, Brooklyn NY, featuring a thin spunover 11 inch rim and mahogany neck with 26 inch scale. The bound ebony fingerboard has snowflake inlays and the peghead a large abalone star and delicate vine; heel cap is bound and inlayed as well; gorgeous delicate back strap/multi-laminations with colorful wood on back of neck and on dowel. Pearl plaque bearing the maker’s name present. Setup with Nylgut strings on original Common Sense tailpiece (missing rosette). Stewart-like tone, but with a bit more "umph". Medium forward relief from years with steel strings, with medium action.
