Geoff Stelling is regarded as having made some of the finest banjos in the history of Banjo Production. He has recently retired which means that not only will there be no more Stelling Banjos, those that exist have gotten hard to find and very desirable. This is a clean and all original example of his Whitestar Banjo which delivers the tone and playing experience that so many have grown to love.
This has a maple neck and resonator with an ebonall fretboard that has snowflake inlay. The hardware is nickel and all original except a Kershner Tailpiece. This includes a one piece Stelling Ribbon Flange and a Stelling No Hole Tone Ring. This is a basic example of a Stelling Banjo but includes the components that produce that loud pop and bang Stelling Banjos are associated with. The One Piece Flange and No Hole Ring are critical.
This includes the original Stelling Hardshell Case.
