B&D Roy Smeck Stage Model Silver Bell #1 Tenor Banjo.

Neck and resonator back are made of exotic Vermillion Wood.

The rim is veneered with the same.

A great tenor banjo with very minor playing wear, but which does have a couple

of issues:

There is an old and solid, and quite visable repaired heel.

The original tuning pegs have been replaced with a set of modern planetary pegs

made in Germany. 

The back of the resonator was at some point refinished and then set down on something before the finish was perfectly dry.

A good straight banjo without the high price that accompanies cosmetic perfection.

Like New Harptone Hard Case.

Calf-Skin Head.

Straight neck, with some fretwear.
