This is a beautiful early custom Fielding. It is sort of a combination of a Catamount and Will's early Wiley models (note the custom hardware). The tonering is what Will called a Catamount - brass rod on pins. This banjo plays, feels, sounds fantastic. I never thought I would sell it, but nothing is selling so I'll be putting up some of my favorite banjos - some real gems. Will record a video tonight or tomorrow. Comes in a slightly beat Superior case. I replaced the original nickel tuners with brass Gotohs and an extra gold fifth - all with 1920s/30s ivoroid buttons. The one odd thing is that the action is set pretty low - 1/2" bridge makes it perfect for clawhammer. 26.25" scale, radiused ironwood board.
