BRAND NEW Blemished Recording King RK-Elite-85 Resonator Banjo with Case
This Recording King RK-Elite-85 Resonator Banjo has a slight manufacturing defect... The 5th string tuner hole was routed slightly oversize. It is sleeved and has no effect on function, and no one in your audience will ever know, but... It Is What It Is.
From the Manufacturer's website:
Modeled after the original Mastertone banjos of the 1930's, our RK Elite 85 offers players classic vintage snap and handcrafted construction.
Professional components like a classic Mastertone-style tone ring and true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim provide the fundamentals for traditional banjo tone.
The highly-flamed maple resonator & neck and sunburst finish result in a stunning banjo with excellent projection and beautiful aesthetics.
With classic design features like the vintage-style double-cut Recording King peghead and custom Hearts & Flowers-style peghead and fretboard inlay, the Elite 85 combines historic banjo tradition with modern construction for a true top shelf instrument.
