Rosewood Neck w/ Overspun Pot (Frank Lee)

This banjo was put together for Frank Lee of the Freighthoppers.  I'd come across an old plank of rosewood (supposedly found in the barn of furniture builder after 70+ years of storage - thank you Ron Thompson) and knew that it was a big enough to create just one neck.  Because this would be my only chance to build a neck with such special wood, I wanted to banjo to be special.  I approached Frank and he went for it.  He supplied the old overspun pot (probably older then the rosewood) and a steel tone ring.

Below is a video of Frank playing this banjo, followed by some more photos.

This banjo has a radiused fingerboad (Frank's request)
