Bacon Belmont 5-String Resonator Banjo ca. 1930 (used)

Regular price $ 788.00

Solid, high-quality construction and hardware typical of Bacon banjos with distinctive pearloid veneer. Probably made after acquisition by Gretsch. Pearloid has been lightly retouched, to blend chips where color was missing. Fully reconditioned and professionally set up by luthier-owner.

Bound maple neck, chrome-plated flange, 24 L-shoes, round-hooks and heavy notched tension hoop (note imperfect shoe spacing). Upgraded with new Gotoh planetary geared tuners, new Remo mylar head, maple/ebony bridge with custom string spacing - a shade narrower than modern standard.

Guaranteed 90 days for structural integrity and playability. Case not included, but we offer a 10% discount on gig bags & cases when purchased with an instrument.
