Sho-bud banjos are sort of hard to find, and the gold plated ones are even more rare. This one has the playing card inlays on the headstock, fingerboard, and resonator. It plays great, and sounds very good as well. In really fine shape, save one piece of binding missing on the resonator. Some of the resonator binding is also crackled, but is still solid. These were made in Japan. Comes with a nice hardshell case. $950 plus $45 shipping to Cont. U.S. addresses.
