Yates Top Tension PB7 5 string Banjo Copy
This is a copy of a Pre War Gibson PB7 top tension. This was made by Warren Yates and Ron Coleman. The neck was made by Ron Coleman and the banjo was also finished by Ron. The tone ring is a Yates tone ring and the pot was built by Warren Yates as well. The rim is a red maple rim built by Warren Yates. The hardware is Prucha Top Tension hardware. The banjo is mahogany with antique nickel plated hardware. The neck is also mahogany with a rosewood fretboard. There is binding on each side of he neck, resonator and headstock. This has a very unique feature in that there is a slight fretboard extension that Noam Pikelny developed for a banjo that he plays. This is a very valuable addition that allows playing songs that have to be played with this extension. This also includes a Superior Hardshell Case.
The banjo is in fantastic condition. All the finish and the hardware are clean and this looks great. The neck is clean as is the hardware. The frets are also in near perfect shape all the way down. There are spikes at the 7th-10th frets. The banjo is set up and plays great. Especially with the added fretboard extension. This is a LOUD banjo. I mean very very loud. The tone is exceptional and it has major volume. The case is also in fantastic shape.
