Unlabelled 5 String Banjo, Most Likely Made By S. S. Stewart

Photo for Ad 216973

$2,750.00 + shipping

Unlabelled Model 5 String Banjo, most likely made by S. S. Stewart, c. 1900, made in Philadelphia, PA, natural finish, double spun rin, cherry neck with ebonized fingerboard, black chipboard case.

Often with "Catalog Jobber" instruments we can tell you who sold it but not who built it; in this case it's the opposite; we know who most likely made this lovely banjo but as it carries no markings at all not who they made it for! It was almost certainly built by the S.S. Stewart company of Philadelphia for sale by some other concern, like Sears, Roebuck & Co. or another similar retailer or jobber. While not branded it is a fairly fancy example of the sort of "Catalog" instruments sold all over the US around 1900. Some features of this banjo suggest a build date right around the turn of the 19th-20th century, sometime after Stewart himself died but his company was still in operation.

The elaborate headstock is typically Stewart style, as is the neatly carved floral-pattern heel. The inlay work is quite impressive, a fingerboard-long floral vine pattern executed in pearl, abalone and silver (or pewter) wire. The delicately inlaid headstock is also a very neat piece of work. The fingerboard is underlaid with several colored wood veneers, as is the heelcap and headstock face. The thick white composite fingerboard binding is unusual for a Stewart build but appears original; if it was added, it was a LONG time ago. The rim is double-spun inside and out, which is also somewhat unusual for a Stewart instrument. While perhaps a bit of a mystery this is a high-grade and lovely end-of-the-19th-century banjo, a beautiful survivor of the age.

Overall length is 36 in. (91.4 cm.), 10 7/8 in. (27.6 cm.) diameter head, and 2 1/2 in. (6.4 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 26 1/2 in. (673 mm.). Width of nut is 1 1/4 in. (32 mm.).

This is a nicely preserved banjo overall, and quite a good player within its period limits. Nearly all the hardware appears original including a complete set of hooks and nuts, Champion tuners and Elite tailpiece. The 5th string peg is later, as is of course the plastic head and the bridge. There is not much wear overall considering this banjo is at least 120 years old, some general wear to the finish and plating and dings and dents to the rim and hoop.

The elaborate pearl-and-wire inlay is all perfectly preserved, the ebonized heelcap shows one tiny shallow split. At some point someone drilled a hole in the dowel for a plate resonator, but that could be easily filled if desired. As with most Stewart banjos the neck is not perfectly straight, but quite suitable for the NylGut strings fitted. It has been noticeably shimmed to achieve a good playing action but is very solid. This is a lovely instrument, a very good player's 19th century style banjo and quite a showpiece for 19th century style fancy inlay work. Excellent - Condition.

New Ute 12″ Maple Ltd Open Back

New / SN: 204
1 1/4″ nut width / 26.25″ Scale

We are almost to the end of our run of these special banjos, known as “Specials” or “Limited” editions. Today OME, ODE and UTE brands of open-back banjos are built using American Cherry wood.

These “specials” and “limited editions”, are made with Mahogany, Walnut, or Maple. These special banjos are made in small batches by Chuck Ogsbury, the founder of ODE, OME and UTE banjo brands in Boulder Colorado.

UTE 12-inch maple limited open back banjo. The rim, neck, and dowel stick feature figured maple.

The peghead has a slightly squarish shape reminiscent of an old-style 1800s guitar peghead. The ebony peghead veneer contains the buffalo nickel inlay in the center. Truss rod adjustment access can be found above a bone nut.

K&H nickel tuners with iridescent bronze buttons both on the peghead and the fifth string in the neck.

The fingerboard is flat and made of rosewood with medium pearl dot inlays and cream-colored side dot position markers. The last four frets are scalloped away at a 45-degree angle, preventing fingernail injury during intense frailing sessions.

The banjo is equipped with a Remo Renaissance head and armrest made of exotic rosewood. There is a maple and ebony Dotson bridge. The tailpiece is a No Knot style. All hardware on the pot is antiqued, including the 26 hooks, nuts, and shoes. There is tortoiseshell celluloid binding on the outer bottom of the rim.

Comes with an OME gig bag.

Gibson TB-4 Tenor Banjo (1924)

Photo for Ad 216887

$1,750.00 + shipping

Gibson TB-4 Model Tenor Banjo (1924), made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, serial # 11078A-50, sunburst varnish finish, laminated maple neck and rim, ebony fingerboard, black hard shell case.

Here's a fine "Loar Era" Gibson that won't break the bank! This 1924 TB-4 tenor banjo is a particularly lovely instrument, a rare variation on this model and somewhat eccentric in layout. Although *not* the banjo design that Gibson is best remembered for this TB-4 was built not long before the fully developed Mastertone era with some of the design and construction features that would soon distinguish that line.

With a short 21"scale neck and smaller 10 1/2" diameter rim the early Gibson tenor banjos have the feel of having been designed by and for mandolin players, as indeed they were. While not popular with orchestra tenor banjo players, they sold well for a time to Gibson's mandolin orchestra clientele eager to pick up on new trends. The TB-4 is a beautifully built instrument with an attractive nouveau aesthetic all its own, with a special appeal apart from the rest of the jazz-age 4-string pack.

The laminated maple rim is finished in dark brown, capped with ebony and bound in ivoroid on the lower edge. It carries the Lloyd Loar-designed perforated tubular tone ring resting on ball bearings used for Mastertones through 1927. The tube hook/nut bearing used on this banjo would become half of the "tube and plate" flange system in 1925 when the "plate" flange was added. This banjo features the then-new Gibson dual co-coordinator rod system for adjusting the neck which has since become the world standard. Inside the rim is a gold "Gibson Guarantee" label and impressed factory order number. All hardware is silver plated, the arm reset and engraved tailpiece cover are still intact.

The narrow short scale neck is a 3-way maple/ebony laminate with a dot-inlaid ebony fingerboard bound in grained ivoroid. The single-bound "moccasin" headstock is the unusual larger shape adopted when Gibson began using the earliest Grover geared banjo tuners in place of the mandolin style gears used previously. Only a small proportion of pre-1925 banjos were built with this design, which like its slimmer sibling it is faced with ebony and inlaid with a slanted "The Gibson" logo, slotted diamond and fleur-de-lys in pearl. The heel is a beautiful shaded "Cremona" sunburst with a bound ebony cap and the back of the headstock is black with a point faired into the neck's ebony stripe. The nut is pearl, characteristic of many top-line Gibsons of this era.

The most interesting feature of this TB-4 is the rarely seen cupped Pearl Pyralin resonator that was briefly an upgrade to the older more common trap door. Gibson called it the "Professional Special" resonator and this fitting was only offered in 1924. The pearlescent surface seems to glow with a life of its own and is lovely concept if rather fragile in execution!

This was an expensive ($150) instrument in its day, equivalent to the F-4 mandolin and L-4 guitar and indeed was top of the line until the Style 5 Master Model line was introduced. This later version is a rare and beautiful banjo, and a fine playable piece of 1920's Gibson ephemera, an unequaled bargain for the enthusiast or collector.

Overall length is 31 1/2 in. (80 cm.), 10 1/2 in. (26.7 cm.) diameter head, and 3 3/4 in. (9.5 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 21 in. (533 mm.). Width of nut is 1 1/8 in. (29 mm.).

Overall this is a well-preserved banjo, showing some light play wear but all original finish and hardware. The neck finish is rubbed-away down to the wood on both sides in the lower positions. The headstock shows some checking with small chips and flakes, with one rubbed-away spot near the A string tuner. The silver plating is somewhat clouded especially on the nuts. The somewhat fragile Pyralin resonator is in excellent shape with no cracks or damage.

The original frets and the fingerboard have some minor wear but the instrument plays fine, set up with a recent white calfskin skin head and the (very rare) original heart-cutout vintage Gibson bridge. The sound is very different from the standard orchestra tenors of the 1920s, with a rather old-fashioned plunk and more warmth and depth than one might expect from such a small rim. The original green plush-lined shaped case is included, somewhat worn but still fully functional. Overall Excellent - Condition.

Addition by subtraction is the name of the game with Ode's 11" Fretless Magician, which sees Boulder-based banjo luthier Zen Ogsbury turn his terrific Magician model into a nylon-string old-time powerhouse. The Magician combines a cherry neck with a maple pot for classic clawhammer tone bursting with clear trebles and a mellow midrange. As per usual, Mr Ogsbury has done some fine work on the fit and finish of this instrument, opting for old-school appointments and a rustic, classic look that still indicates a high level of craftsmanship and careful attention to detail. Colorado is lucky to have such great instruments built right here in the Front Range - every new Ode we get in our shop quickly becomes a favorite of every customer we hand it to. Included in the price is a padded Access gig bag.

Recording King RK-Ot26-Br Madison Old Time Open Back Banjo

Photo for Ad 216863

Suggested retail $1,067.99
Our price $799.99

More and more players of all kinds and all ages are feeling the pull to traditional old time or clawhammer banjo music. The stripped-down style highlights the close interplay between the banjo and voice.

The RK Madison OT26 is the perfect companion for old-time musicians, as the Whyte Laydie tone ring gives the banjo traditional tone with a percussive lilt that’s the perfect accompaniment to the classic singing style.

With a hand-rubbed satin finish, a maple neck with adjustable truss rod, and a true steam-bent maple rim, the Madison RK-OT26 is a vintage-style picking machine.

The traditional scalloped Whyte Laydie tone ring is prized for its warm but punchy tone, allowing each fundamental note to speak clearly without distracting overtones.

Add features like the maple neck, no-knot tailpiece, and precise tension control from the 24-bracket tension hoop, and players have all the essentials for the classic old-time sound.

The OT26 is outfitted with lots of traditional features, and some changes where modern performance counts: the dual coordinator rods & truss rod, Remo FiberSkyn head, and Mastertone-style armrest all combine for an exceptional playing experience.

Finish it off with the scooped fretboard for strumming and a steam-bent maple rim for woody, traditional open-back tone, and you have a pro-level banjo you can take anywhere.

Ever wanted to play a tune with a fiddle player but couldn't play it in the key they wanted to? One solution would be to buy a capo for your banjo, but another might be to invest in an A-scale banjo, like this sweet little CC-OTA from Gold Tone. An A-scale banjo is tuned up a whole step from a regular banjo - meaning it's quite adept at playing in the keys of A and D, two that are favorites of fiddle players. The CC-OTA also sports all of the useful extra features that a good clawhammer banjo should, including a full frailing scoop, a Fiberskyn head for extra warmth and low end, and a spike at the seventh fret, making it a great instrument for old time music. Additionally, it can also be easily tuned down to the more typical open G tuning, making it a good fit for smaller people interested in learning how to play the banjo. Included in the price is a Gold Tone gig bag, for easy and lightweight protection while transporting your instrument.

Gibson All-American Flat-Head Tenor 1930 - $95,000

Photo for Ad 216817

$95,000

Toward the end of the Jazz Age, Gibson took banjo design over the top with the All-American. The resonator, headstock and neck heel were carved with an eagle motif, the pearloid fingerboard was hand-tinted with historical scenes, and the gold-plated metal parts were elaborately engraved. It carried a list price in 1929 of $550. With the introduction of the All-American came the Great Depression, and Gibson only made an estimated 25 AA's over the next decade. This All-American from 1930 was fitted with a flat-head tone ring. (All other known examples, except the very first AA, have an archtop ring.) The ring weighs 3 lbs, 2.9 oz. The flange is a two-piece, standard on the AA. This banjo is completely original. A custom truss rod cover bears the original owner's name - Phil Drake. Phil played his AA enough to wear off most of the scenes on the fingerboard and the finish on the back of the neck. Check out the image of Phil in his Navy days.

Gold Star GF-100Hf Hearts & Flower 5-String Banjo

Photo for Ad 216794

$1,800.00

The Gold Star GF-100HF was inspired by the Mastertone banjos of the early 1930s. Like the classic banjos for that era, this one has a mahogany neck and resonator and the Hearts and Flowers inlay pattern in the fretboard, which was usually found on higher-end banjos like the Granada. The GF-100HF has a 3-ply maple shell, a 20-hole cast bronze flathead tone ring, a die-cast 1-piece flange and a neck profile patterned on a genuine 1930s Gibson RB-3. This banjo has that classic flathead bluegrass banjo tone at a price that won’t break the bank. This distributor prices this banjo without a case, but we think a fine banjo in this price range deserves protection, so we've priced it including a good hardshell.

Acoustic guitars, mandolins, and banjos are still the mainstays at Gryphon, as they have been for over 45 years, though our inventory of steel guitars and ukuleles continues to grow as well. In recent years an important part of our growth has been in instruments by very small companies and individual makers, as we continue to keep one foot, or at least several toes, outside the mainstream music industry.

The Ode Magician is a storied moniker in the lineage of Ode's open-back banjos - a model with decades of history behind it, dating back to before Chuck Ogsbury started building banjos under the name Ome instead. With that sort of a chip on its shoulder, it's a real joy to confirm to our customers that the new Ode Magicians live up to the hype and continue Mr Ogsbury's tradition of excellent clawhammer banjos geared at the intermediate to advanced players. This Ode even compares favorably to some of Ome's more modest models, with a bright and crisp sound thanks to its cherry neck and flamed maple pot, making this a great option for players who love the sound of Ome Banjos but prefer more subdued cosmetics (as well as a lower price). A full frailing scoop makes this a perfect tool for playing fiddle tunes, and the lightweight pot ensures the tone stays bright, punchy, and capable of cutting through the sound of an old-time stringband. Simply put, we love this banjo and are excited to see what's next from Ode. Included in the price is a padded gig bag by Ome Banjo Company.

A resonator back provides more projection of sound in the Goodtime Two. We make it here in the USA, at the Deering shop with the same tooling we use to make the top of the line banjos. Greg Deering designed the Goodtime banjos because there were no low priced banjos of enough quality for people to actually learn on without difficulty or giving up. He remembers what it was like to want a good banjo and not be able to afford one, so his gift to others is the Goodtime banjo line. Designed for success, the Goodtime banjos are the lowest priced American made banjos. They are so good many professionals have recorded with Goodtime banjos.

The Goodtime Two weighs 6 lbs - about the weight of a guitar. The Goodtime Two has a natural blonde maple with a satin finish to protect it. The rich, golden tone and the reverberation off the resonator sound great. You can definitely tell a volume difference between open back and a Goodtime Two. The sound waves aren't getting trapped between you and the banjo, which makes a pretty big difference. If you want a great low priced bluegrass banjo for travel and leisure that plays correctly and is durable, this is the best buy on the market!

Fairbanks Whyte Laydie # 7 5 String Banjo (1907)

Photo for Ad 216730

$10,000.00 + shipping

Fairbanks Whyte Laydie # 7 Model 5 String Banjo (1907), made in Boston, Mass., serial # 24019, natural varnish finish, laminated maple rim and neck, ebony fingerboard, period black hard shell case.

This is a splendid original example of one of the most desired of all openback 5-strings: the early Fairbanks Whyte Laydie #7. With its large (almost 12" diameter) rim and long 28" scale this instrument produces a sound that few other banjos, new or old, can match. It is also a feast for the eyes as well as the ears! The #7 is an exceptionally beautiful banjo, with the elaborate early Consalvi-style hand-engraved pearl inlay on the peghead and fingerboard including the famous "gryphon" design on the headstock rear. The heel is elaborately carved in a floral pattern with a pearl-inlaid ebony heelcap.

The rim is equipped with Fairbanks' patented bracket band with the shoes are mounted to that, not drilled through the rim. The rim is fitted with the "Electric" tone ring that was the finest of its time (this banjo pre-dates the Tu-Ba-Phone by several years) and still a standard today. It is capped with tortoise celluloid on both edges and has elaborate herringbone marquetry along the bottom.

The Whyte Laydie model was largely the brainchild of David Day, chief engineer at Fairbanks and arguably the single most important if unsung banjo designer of all time. His technical and aesthetic innovations have been widely copied for many decades, yet few banjo players even know his name. 100+ years on the Whyte Laydie #7 remains a testament to his dedication to the banjo and a tribute to the original Fairbanks/Vega crew that built it. This is one vintage instrument that instantly justifies its stellar reputation as one of the finest of "old school" banjos ever made.

Overall length is 37 1/4 in. (94.6 cm.), 11 13/16 in. (30 cm.) diameter head, and 2 9/16 in. (6.5 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 28 in. (711 mm.). Width of nut is 1 in. (25 mm.).

This 115+ year old banjo remains in splendid mostly original condition showing average wear and some light repair, but is very fine for its age and far less re-worked than many. There is a filled hole for a resonator mounting pin under the "Fairbanks" nameplate on the dowel stick, that is the only really notable repair work. The original thin varnish finish on the neck shows some wear down to the wood in the lower positions, there is light wear to the rim as well. A small piece of binding has been replaced on the bass side of the neck near the rim. The frets appear original with some light wear, and the fretboard has some light divoting in the first position and some small chipping evident.

The hardware is mostly original and correct; just under half of the original and superbly elegant cobra hooks probably broke eons ago and were replaced with slightly later period Fairbanks/Vega hooks. The plating is relatively well preserved overall with the most loss on the wire armrest. The tailpiece is a period No-Knot and the hoop has been lightly notched where it is mounted. The original pearl-button friction pegs are fully intact and functioning, although as always must be handled with care. The banjo is set up with an old Rogers genuine calf skin head and newer bridge, making for an excellent player with the warm and rich traditional sound these are renowned for. The banjo rests in a nice period HSC, which appears to be of just slightly later vintage than the instrument itself. Overall Excellent - Condition.
