For Sale: Gibson Blackjack with cox rim and blaylock ring (sold)
This one good sounding blackjack now that Frank Neat installed a Cox 3 ply maple rim and a blaylock tone ring. It took the banjo from dull to pretty dang good sounding banjer. I bought it brand new and the arm rest shows a little wear due to the nature of the finish of the hardware. I will include the original rim and tonering at no extra charge. I think this is one of the coolest looking banjos Gibson has put out in a while and now with the cox and blaylock combinations it has the sound similar to my Chief mahogany banjo. The blaylock ring is a loud tonering and will cut very well in a jam session. It has spikes at 7 and 9 ready to play. The case is in mint condition the banjo has left my house only a handfull of times to play indoors and I have never set the combination lock. It has never been exposed to heat or rain. I think I still have the reciept from Frank Neat in the case to verify the change. This aint no ordinary blackjack Frank said now it is playable meaning the tone is good and he knows the sound of a good banjo. Also comes with a dogwood leather strap. no dings or scratches. may negotiate give me a try.
