Wildwood banjos were made by Mark Platin from 1973-2018, offering both resonator models for traditional bluegrass players and open-back models for clawhammer. This “Heirloom” model features Wildwood’s proprietary wood rim machined from solid rock maple blocks, as well as their nickel-plated brass Tub-a-phone style tone ring that was also made in-house. Other features include a two-piece flame maple neck with binding, bound ebony fingerboard with mother-of-pearl fingerboard inlays, two-way adjustable truss rod, Waverly style tailpiece, 1 7/32” bone nut, and a 26 1/8” scale length. Cosmetically the banjo shows some average play wear but is in very nice condition; there is some average tarnishing of the nickel plated arm rest and brackets, but the back of the neck is very clean with no capo marks, and the rim is equally as nice. Comes in a hardshell case.
