Well how many of these have you seen?..this is the 9th banjo Warren built and the only walnut Rattlesnake that he built...it was built in 2006...this was built before Warren started making tone rings so the banjo has a Tennessee 20 ring in it (as built)...the banjo has a radiused fingerboard and a very unique inlay of a moonshine still in the headstock and footprints,malt barley,moon & stars along the fingerboard and a pistol under the rattlesnake banner...it has a Yates made tailpiece...the walnut in very nice but the back of the reso has some finish checking but i think it gives it character ...yes you can buy Yates banjo somewhat cheaper but you wont find another one like this...i might consider trading for a nice top tension,preferably a great lakes TT, or possibly towards a nechville xxv phantom...or maybe a nice galaxy phantom..and who knows? i might even trade it for a nice goldstar JD crowe! (first run)...but am not zeroed in on those exact banjos so if you have something i might be interested in just shoot me a message or will sell for $4000.00...this does come in the original tkl Rattlesnake case shown...thanks
