❌ SOLD ❌ Second Life MasterClone Banjo 2014

Banjo-maker Carl Arcand routinely restores older banjos to give them a ‘second life’ from his Eastern Townships shop in Ulverton, Quebec. This fine example Second Life MasterClone Banjo is still archived on his site. This instrument is assumed to be based on a 60s or 70s Gibson TB-250 ‘donor-banjo’ pot with flathead bronze tone ring and fitted to an Arcand handmade replica neck. The resurrection work was completed and the banjo first sold in 2014. This Second Life MasterClone Banjo is certainly equal or superior to any 70’s original Gibson. It is what we would call a RB-250 Mastertone “clone” banjo or “Master-Clone” banjo.

❌SOLD❌ Michael Greenfield G-1 Cutaway Steel String Guitar Brazilian, 2002

The Greenfield G-1 is a very responsive guitar, quick to react to even the lightest touch and lends itself to many different styles of music. It has a very focused yet open sound with a tight responsive bass, transparent mids and thick, clear, ringing highs. Primarily intended as a fingerstyle guitar, it is also superb for light strumming or acoustic jazz.

The Boucher Wild Goose 000 Cutaway Steel String is built using Adirondack spruce for the top and bracing – the Boucher shop is located in Quebec’s Adirondack mountains, a bit east of Quebec City on the South Shore, and the spruce is local.  These are great playing and sounding instruments.  Boucher now has two models, the Genuine Goose and the Studio Goose, with a satin or gloss finish, body sizes and appointments being the main differentiator.
