1930s Gibson TB-00 Banjo 5-String Conversion

Photo for Ad 139178

Here we have a terrific sounding 5-string banjo that started out life as Gibson’s entry level tenor with very simple appointments, an 11” diameter rim and one-piece flange, now wedded to a new Recording King  mahogany neck that matches the single bound resonator.

This combination produces a crisp, clear full-bodied Gibson tone that devotees of both Uncle Dave or Earl Scruggs will find most pleasing. Surprisingly there is no tone ring whatsoever, nor even a hoop, making for an extremely light weight instrument.

This instrument is in excellent condition, the hardware is original with the exception of the arm rest which is a modern replica, the resonator is clean and  the new neck  lacks fret wear, nicks or scratches.


$2,450.00 with new Epiphone hard case.
