I have here for sale their top of the line Vintage 5-string Mastertone Style Resonator banjo. It is correctly named the Elite-77. Modeled after the original Mastertone banjos of the 1930's, the RK-Elite-77 offers players vintage sound and handcrafted construction. Professional components like a gold plated Mastertone-style tone ring, Gotoh Planetary tuners, one-piece Mahogany Resonator, true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim, one piece mahogany neck with longer scale length like the vintage models, and nitrocellulose lacquer finish put this banjo in a category by itself. Add a 27.5" scale length, double-cut Recording King Peghead, custom Flying Eagle-style inlay, and the Elite becomes an "H.G. Wells" Banjo Time Machine. Let this baby take you back in time, and you will not want to come back. I own and play a Recording King RK-Elite banjo, and mine plays effortlessly, like silk, and the sound is just WOW.  You can see all the wonderful features listed below. You can watch lots of clips of the RK-Elite banjo on YouTube, and there is even a video of the Recording King folks doing a setup and playing it too, awesome, check it out.
