This is a 12" 16 shoe Spartan with a walnut rim and Bacon tone ring. The rim has bronze ball end shoes and the hardware is polished brass. The neck is walnut with an ebony fingerboard. As with most of my banjos, this banjo has a 25.5" scale and the width at the nut is 1 3/8". Very comfortable to play. This banjo is headed to Hallsville, TX.
