13" pot--a Chuck Lee Banjo Special

Look what we built for Lee Thomas--a dandy new banjo with a 13" pot. Here's Lee's note:

"Hey Chuck and Tammy, Just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying the new banjo. The one ply, 13" rim is amazing. The clarity and tone are great and the balance from one to five is perfect. I played it the entire gig last Saturday and it was more than a match for our hard driving fiddle player. Looks like I'll be taking it to the gigs from now on. Thanks for another great banjo!"

Lee's banjo was built of maple with a gorgeous antique cherry stain. The rim is a one-ply, maple, with black stain.

This is one of two we have made--the second went to Zepp Country Music, where is sold promptly. More are planned!
