Hi banjo music lovers! After careful consideration I have decided to sell my treasured style 5 Gibson banjo. This banjo has a few special things about it. The most important and interesting is, that it came with an original prewar 5 string tension hoop! This banjo also was ordered with nickel hardware instead of gold as this happened a few times I have been told. Frank neat did the conversion neck and said it came that way from the original owner. The pot is all original pre war with arch top tone ring, tube and plate flange, style 5 bound wood rim and serial number and Gibson sticker to match, 5 string tension hoop, all original hooks and nuts, pre war presto tail piece, resonator. The only thing that has been replaced is the armrest. I put a new one on because it was more stable. This banjo is a great playing banjo and it’s been my main banjo for several years. This banjo has that real “pre war growl” and it will be your favorite banjo to play. It is set up perfectly and plays with ease. I can send more pictures but this site wouldn’t let me put any more. It is always the banjo people play and say “man, that right there is a good banjo!” Don’t take my word for it, make her part of your collection! Thanks!
