Orpheum #3 Tenor Banjo

Photo for Ad 161589

This Orpheum No.3 Special tenor banjo was made by Rettberg & Lange, Serial Number 724833
The No. 3 Special with beautiful abalone inlays on the fretboard, headstock overlay, back of the headstock and the heel cap. The heel has a nice carved flower pattern, and it's adorned with other detailed marquetry throughout. Celtic session players will love this 16 fret banjo with a short 19 ¾”" scale length, which makes it a great option for any mandolinist looking to get into tenor banjo. 12” maple pot, 1/1/8” Nut width. It appears to be all original except for replacement tuners, bridge and a new Remo banjo head. There is a repair to the top two frets on the fretboard, which is visible but stable. Currently tuned to GDAE but can also be tuned CGDA. Comes with a new TKL hard shell case, a bracket nut wrench, a couple of extra bridges and some extra strings. $750.00 OBO
