Regular price $ 875.00

Elegant and high quality turn-of-the-century banjo, fully restored to excellent condition, with planetary geared "Pegheds" tuners exactly like original pegs in appearance. Nicely carved, V-profile neck in fine playing shape. Check out the carving for the 5th string! Heavy "spun-over" rim with plating in good condition with new vellum head and nylgut strings produces authentic, rich, sweet tone.

Professionally restored, set up and guaranteed 90 days for structure and playability by luthier-owner. Cosmetically as-is. Case is not included, but we offer discounts on cases & gig bags purchased with an instrument.
