The Stelling Red Fox was introduced in 1996 and inspired by master banjoist Bill Emerson. The fancy curly maple used in this model is enhanced by the reddish stain. The Red Fox in the peghead and the abalone maple leaves in the fingerboard help to make this a very striking model. Other features include nickel plated hardware and a Tony Pass "600TS Old Wood" rim. Cosmetically this banjo is in "like-new" condition and comes housed in the original hardshell case.
