This Frank Proffitt-style fretless mountain banjo was built from a kit in 1967 by its previous owner, Mike Rivers. He was a studio engineer, producer and musician, and we are selling numerous items of his on behalf of his estate.

Our senior luthier did a full set up on the banjo including new bridge, Aquila nylgut strings, cleaning and rejuvenating the oil finish. It is now in very good condition (well-built to begin with). It has a warm, dark and haunting sound, and is very fun to play! Gig bag included; slightly large for the instrument. 

- Cherry neck and pot (10") 
- 6-inch natural skin head
- Rosewood fingerboard
- Brass tone ring
- Original friction tuners work very well
- 24.5" scale
- 9/16th" bridge
- 6.2 lbs
