1930 Gibson TB2 with original case. Walnut resonator and neck with original Grover pancake tuners. Grover windowpane tailpiece without the cover, hide head, an non-tip bridge.

The prewar tension hoop was cracked at a notch under the armrest. The hoop was sent to in Vacaville, California to be repaired by low heat welding. Check out their site. It is a very tedious process requiring multiple passes. guaranteed it to be structurally sound under tension. It is doing fine, no issue. The repair area was fine sanded and typically it would be re-plated. It was not re-plated in order to preserve the prewar characteristics of the hoop. The original plating is intact elsewhere, The armrest covers the sanded area. Bottom line is all parts on this banjo, except head strings and bridge, came from Gibson in 1930.

The resonator has a number of scratches. The back of the neck shows playing wear, the stenciling on the fingerboard is nice and crisp. The flange has some pull.

$3600 plus shipping. No trades.
