❌SOLD❌ Hartel Levi Brown Fretless Long Scale Banjo Walnut, 2008


Instrument Categories: ,

The Hartel Levi Brown fretless 5-string banjo is an high quality reproduction of instruments built around 1858 by Levi Brown who built banjos in Baltimore, Maryland.

This excellent instrument features a 13 inch pot with brass hardware and a long – 28 inch! – scale Black Walnut neck. The neck has a slotted peghead and Waverly tuners – an improvement over the original, which would have had wooden friction pegs. There is a large frailing scoop, and a distinctive notch in the fingerboard at the octave. The Hartel Levi Brown tailpiece is Rosewood, and it is strung with nylon strings.

This Hartel Levi Brown banjo is in excellent condition, is quite loud and has a rather ‘tubby’ tone.

A gig bag is included.
