I mainly play 5 string bluegrass banjo and need to thin out my stock of instruments
A deluxe 4-string banjo with all-maple rim and Fishman electronics.Schmidt' signature on the headstock.
Including : Robert Schmidt' signature on the headstock.
Including : Hard case.
Selling the instrument as I have decided to concentrate on Bluegrass 5 string and open tuning styles.
This instrument has had very little play and is as good as new. It comes with a hard case and has a great sound quality acoustically and particularly when amplified due to its 'Fishman Rare Earth' banjo pick up.
This Fender Robert Schmidt Plectrum Banjo delivers that incredible four-string tone and vibe that the Flogging Molly multi-instrumentalist is so well known for.
Typically tuned to CGBD, you can think of this banjo as a 5-string banjo without the shorter 5th-string. Schmidt designed this signature banjo to withstand the rigours of road along with his well known demanding playing style. It would be a mistake to underestimate the durability and quality of this beautifully balanced instrument.
