It includes a tradition heel cut, no-knot tailpiece, and Vega-style armrest. The White Ladye tone ring provides a loud plunky tone preferred by old timey players.

On a Long Neck Banjo, the 5th string peg is actually located at the 8th fret, not the 5th fret, and tuned to E not G.
This makes the most common frets for capo spikes on a long neck: 11 for the key of G, 13 for A and 15 for B. Since the long neck is positioned at the 8th fret and tuned to E, it's up 3 for G, up 5 for A, up 7 for B.
Even though I prefer or normally recommend the capo spikes over the 5th string sliding capo on a standard length 5-string banjo, the sliding 5th string capos can be pretty practical on a long neck, you can put that anywhere for any key or tuning configuration. We can install those too.
Both are listed in the options below.
