This is a Coles Eclipse rim with a 5-string neck by Douglas Unger, an accomplished instrument builder, carver and engraver. The heel has a fine carving and the stunning inlays are based upon those from various Cole banjos. The neck has a little more wood, which gives the banjo nice sustain and a great old-time sound.
