❌SOLD❌  Stelling Bellflower 5-String Banjo, 2012

The Stelling Bellflower 5-String Banjo is the basis of the Stelling Sunflower Banjo, and features Virginia Black Walnut construction to the Sunflower’s flame maple. This provides a somewhat warmer, rounder tone.   The Bellflower consistently gets rave reviews from its owners.  Stelling established themselves as a benchmark in modern banjo construction with a unique approach to tone ring to rim construction that ensures maximum ring to rim contact for full tonal transmission.

The Deering Golden Wreath 5 String banjo is a beautiful instrument that is an accurate reproduction of the classic banjos of the 1930’s, but at a fraction of the originals cost. Normally the Deering Golden Wreath is built with Mahogany, but for the last several years Deering has been custom building the Golden Wreath in Walnut for The Twelfth Fret.

Paramount Style B 5 String Banjo Maple, 1922

Paramount Style B 5 String Banjo Maple, 1922

The Paramount Style B 5 string is built using Maple for the bulk of the wooden components, with a bound Brazilian Rosewood bridge and headplate. The classic, fairly complex inlay set is executed in engraved Mother of Pearl. There is natural wear and checking to the lacquer finish, and there is some damage to parts of the headstock inlays from previous re-gluing work, along with some cracks in the Brazilian Rosewood head plate – this is to be expected on an instrument nearly a century old.
