This smallish pot Buckbee has a 9-3/4″rim with a spun nickel-silver shell, 24 brackets and a skin head. The machined tension hoop has a beveled upper edge. It is setup with a skin head and nylon strings. The neck is cherry with an ebonized fingerboard decorated with pearl inlays, including a star at the bottom of the board and one on the headstock. The neck is warped – making the action high even with nylon strings. The headstock is setup with Champion style friction pegs with black buttons. Gig bag included.
