Early 20th Century Unmarked 5-String Banjo (used)

Regular price $ 720.00

This pretty frailer model has been expertly restored to excellent playing condition and upgraded with new, fancy original pearl inlays transferred over, new bone nut and 5th-string nut, and a quality ebony fretboard and faceplate that will last a lifetime! It doesn't have a label, but "23" is stamped inside the rim.

The spun-over rim lacks plating, but is clean and consistent. It has 24 round hooks and L-shoes, (5 new hooks and 7 replacement nuts), and embossed heavy brass tension hook. The original neck brace and steel stabilizer has been repaired, and it still has its original patent tailpiece!

This instrument has been set up with high quality period friction pegs, and a "Renaissance" mylar head and steel strings. Plays great! May be strung with nylon/gut.

Guaranteed 90 days for structural integrity and playability by luthier-owner.

There is no case included, but we do offer 10% discounts on any gig bag or case purchased with this instrument!
