The pot on this extremely rare banjo was, in all probability, built in 1927, and the neck a decade later. There is no carving on the neck, and the peghead inlay is completely different than on the standard Bella Voce. It is absolutely original, with tube and plate flange and a 40-hole archtop tone ring. We had Richie Dotson of Acoustic Box LLC in Virginia build a 5-string neck that matches the original perfectly. It is a really neat instrument and you'll probably never see another like it!
