Pattison Whyte Laydie 5-String Black Walnut Banjo

Once again we have a locally sourced Ian Pattison Whyte Laydie style open back banjo in Black Walnut from Pattison Stringed Instruments in Guelph, Ontario. The original Whyte Laydie banjos were made by A C Fairbanks starting around 1901 and ending in 1904 when the Fairbanks shop was destroyed in a fire, and the Vega company took over production. This lovely Pattison Whyte Laydie banjo features a Whyte Laydie tone ring by Rickert from Aurora, Ontario and a Renaissance head.
