Hondo II Resonator Banjo Butterfly Inlays

  • $399.00
    Unit price per 

Although the Hondo brand name is not usually synonymous with high quality, this particular piece is really special with the butterfly motif inlaid at strategic fret markers and on the back of the tube and flange resonator. It also features a tone ring and planetary tuners with a geared 5th string peg. There is a lot of intricate work that went into this banjo from the 7 piece neck to the dual rope pattern inlays wrapping the side of the resonator and framing the butterfly on the back of the resonator.

There was a repair done around the 5th string peg as well as replacement 5th string nut put in. Also, a previous owner(s) had drilled holes into the side of the resonator presumably for some sort of strap hook installation which were subsequently filled back in (see pics). However, the entire instrument is structurally sound and looks and plays great. 

9.25% tax will be added for residents of TN.
