Smakula Fretted instruments is on its way back to regular business. As you know, we have been shipping instruments and parts throughout the pandemic. We are again accepting banjo, guitar, mandolin and minor fiddle repairs. For the safety of our staff, we can not invite people into the shop, but we now have a heated camper trailer in front of the shop for repair drop off and pickup, as well as a place to test instruments we have for sale.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we all work through the details of the new normal.

Please stay safe.

Used Tradesman banjos in stock;
2020 Enoch Tradesman Flush Fret Fretless.
Having sold out of new Enoch Tradesman banjos for the first time ever, we were glad to accept this one in on trade. Purchased new from SFI about 1 year ago, this banjo is in excellent, nearly new condition. This example has a 12" painted black rim with a Remo Renaissance head. The neck is walnut with a 25-1/2" scale Richlite fingerboard with the Enoch designed S-scoop. The fret slots are cut and inlaid with thin binding material to give you the place to accurately place your fingers. Currently set up with Aquila Nylgut strings, but changing to steel strings is no problem. The price for a similar banjo ordered new, with the included Enoch badged Superior hard case, is $1,435. Being a lightly used instrument we are offering it for $1,100. Photos

Upgrade from the Enoch gigbag to a Superior brand hard case for only $125!
