Ramsey fretless with Stelling tone ring. That's right; you read it
correctly. This banjo wandered into my shop about fifteen years ago,
and has remained in the back room until now. It was built while Ramsey
was in Ohio; serial number is 190. Scale length is approximately 25½."
The tone ring is a flathead Stelling, and is marked as such. It apears
to be aluminum, but I haven't removed it. I talked with Geoff Stelling
and he remembered it as an experimental ring, but didn't
recall how it left his shop. So, it is absolutely a one-of-a-kind
instrument. Sounds great, and is in excellent condition.
