Wonderful openback banjo that is mostly all original hardware and an original 5-string neck.
Serial number 78098 • Mahogany
10 15/16″ pot
This is a fairly rare banjo to have been made this late in the 1920’s. Mostly all original parts.
Appears to be original frets and original 5th string pip. Original 5 friction tuners work fine.
Set-up with a newer hide head and bridge.
The neck is very nice and not bowed.
Some polite cracking in the dyed pearwood fingerboard and heelcap.
This is a fine banjo that is a piece of history and also a great sounding instrument.
Comes with a hard shell case.
