Selman Special Banjo

Banjo Neck
Selman Special Banjo is highest quality in materials and workmanship. It features a gold plated Blaylock tone ring. These tone rings are featured in the Osborne Chief banjos. JD Crowe also has a banjo with the Blaylock tone ring. I spoke to JD about Blaylock tone ring and JD quoted it being the best tone that you can buy today besides the pre-war flathead tone rings. JD said what he really likes about the tone ring is that it sustains its volume all the way up the neck. The Selman Special has a curly maple neck and resonator. Rosewood fretboard and has hand cut green abalone mother of pearl. The edge of the fretboard is inlaid with green abalone pearl and below the binding is green abalone pearl. The resonator is a highly figured curly maple and is inlayed with green abalone pearl on the back side of the resonator and on the sides of the resonator below the white and black binding. The banjo has the V-2 band Waverly tuning keys. The armrest, tailpiece and tension hoop is heavily engraved and gold plated. This is an excellent playing and sounding banjo and the pictures does not do this banjo justice. The price for the Selman Special banjo is $6,000.00. There is a 6 month waiting period on this banjo with 50% down and the final payment when the banjo is complete.
