Long Neck Lefite banjo FOR SALE
All lefties will know how RARE an instrument this is.
It’s a custom-made Clareen long neck, left-handed banjo. I had it made in 2006, frustrated at not being able to get a leftie long neck anywhere - such a thing simply didn’t exist, according to a lot of top makers!
So, Tom Cussen decided he would bulid a special, one-off long-neck leftie for me. It’s a lovely instrument, open-back with Whyte Ladie tone ring and maple finish. It comes with attached railroad spikes… it also comes with a case.
I’m not sure entirely sure I want to part with this instrument, but if someone out there wants the opportunity to collect such a rare instrument, then I would be willing to let it go for €4,000.
I have since gone on to playing a standard scale, Dobson-style openback, playing more old-time tunes as opposed to the Seeger-style I was using.
