anyone ever heard of these?  There's one for sale in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho.  They listed it as a tenor.

Made by William Lange.  Check in the archives and google.  A good banjo.

William L. Lange made several different Langstile banjos with different numbers on them. Some are more elaborate than others. I don't think I've seen a Langstile plectrum banjo, but there are a number of tenors still around.

Lange ceased banjo production some time around 1935.

I have owned a Langsytle II plectrum with the adjustable tailpiece. It seemed to play ok.

Definitely a plectrum banjo. From the few poor quality pictures, it looks to be fairly priced, but a closer inspection is needed.

Hello John, That is NOT a Langstyle DELUXE, I have mine for sale on Kevin Scott's Findajo site.

These were made by Wm . L. Lange, as a cheaper range to the Paramounts, along with others.

www.findajo.co.uk for reference

Cheers Keith

Fairly priced?? With hard case, OBO?? BHOers are getting very callous, I'd say.  Paul

I'd say cautious, not callous. If it actually is as good as it looks, it's a bargain, certainly. I'd prefer better photos, myself, before plunking down my hard-earned cash, though.
