Tube and plate diamond flange, and 40-hole archtop tone ring. Richie Dotson just made a new copy neck for this mahogany banjo. Note the fancy concentric rings on the resonator. Studio King banjos are quite rare; much more so than Recording Kings. This one is completely original, including the Presto tailpiece, and it still has the original skin head. The resonator has numerous scratches, but it could easily be refinished. FON 9615-7.
