This Gibson PB-4 conversion F.O.N. 9471-3 is in wonderful condition. This banjo is a "litter mate" to the "Hollywood Hills" style 4 that recently gained a lot of attention and rightfully so. The banjo pot is 100% all original with the factory FULL WEIGHT, HIGH PROFILE, FLATHEAD TONE RING. This banjo has been verified by the right people and the paperwork is included. This banjo also features the "fat rim" that were produced in this era and the flange has "pull" at the neck notch (which is common with a "fat rim").
Included in the sale of this banjo are 3 high quality 5-string necks. The first is a Frank Neat mahogany neck which is currently installed. Also another Frank Neat neck that is walnut AND a walnut neck made by Wyatt Fawley. All three of these necks have Flying Eagle inlay and are nearly mint. And last but not least the original plectrum neck and skin head are with this banjo.
As far as the sound goes, it's everything you'd expect from a chrome plated flathead four! It has the "edge" associated with a 4 and the "sweetness" associated with a mahogany neck.
Serious inquiries please.
