Hartel Boucher Banjo Maple, 2008

Hartel  Boucher Banjo Maple, 2008

This Hartel Boucher banjo dates to 2008 and is in very good condition. It features a solid Maple neck with the distinctive Boucher headstock, and what look just like Ebony friction pegs but are in fact excellent PegHed geared tuners.    The 12 inch pot has six cast brass Boucher style brackets, and an Ebony tailpiece. This is a fretless instrument, so the precise scale length varies with bridge placement.

❌SOLD❌ Rickenbacker 4001FL Fretless Maple Glo 1978

❌SOLD❌  Rickenbacker 4001FL Fretless Maple Glo 1978

Only available as a special order during the 1960s and based closely on the base 4001  model, the Rickenbacker 4001FL was offered from 1968 until the 4001 was discontinued in 1989. The key differences between the 4001 and the Rickenbacker 4001FL are in the fingerboard and binding. Naturally, the bound Padouk fingerboard is fretless, but is not a modified fretted board. Some builders will use a fretted board, filling the slots with veneer, giving visible markings an an aid to intonation.
