Late model Super Orpheum No 2 built by William Lange.  The banjo is in great shape with only some minor fret and fingerboard wear and finish crazing/checking.

Neck - slim 5-piece walnut neck with laminated stripes.  The scale length is 22-3/4" with 19 frets.  The nut is 1-1/8" wide.  The fingerboard is rosewood with 8 mother of pearl inlays.  There is also a nicely carved heel.

Rim - the rim is made of walnut with the standard Opheum tone ring design.  The is nice nickel plated flange attached.  The resonator is walnut with rosewood binding and multi-colored marquetry inlaid on the back.  The resonator is easily removed by hand with 2 nuts on the side.

Setup - it is tuned GDAE with trad banjo medium nickel strings.  A new Clareen head was installed.  The action is .080" at the 12th fret.  The bridge in the pictures was for testing, it will come with our standard maple/ebony 3 leg bridge at 9/16" in height.  The banjo comes with original tuners, armrest, and tailpiece.  Also included is the case it arrived it, not sure if this was orginal to the banjo.
