For sale is a very lightly used Gold Tone OB-150 5-string resonator bluegrass banjo. It was purchased last year, new, from Elderly Instruments. There have been no modifications made to it. There is nothing wrong with it, no issues at all. It's a lovely banjo! A great bluegrass machine. Loud with a wonderful tone. Original bridge, no spikes. It will ship inside its original hardshell case, which will in turn be padded inside a large shipping box.

Since I bought it, it has left the house twice. It lives in its case. I play it almost daily but see no playing wear. Photos forthcoming.

Background: Recently, I was injured on the job and unable to walk for 8 weeks. In that time, I had no income and went in the hole to make ends meet. After weeks of wrangling, workers' comp paid out 67% of the wages that I missed. I am treading water, but barely, and still trying to recover what I lost. I had purchased the banjo earlier than the injury (indeed got some picking time in while laid up) but it just doesn't make sense to hold onto another five string banjo with a worst case scenario going on and mounting expenses.

I am happy to answer any and all questions about the instrument (or the injury -- even got some advice about footwear). The original paperwork is within the case and will be sent to the buyer. I will accept payment in the form of a US Postal money order. I'll accept returns only from local pickups to avoid the hassle of shipping it all over the place. Buyer responsible for insurance and cost of actual shipping. I'd prefer to send it via FedEx but if you have a different option, we can discuss it.

Will ship from Draper, Utah, USA. Howdy!

Thanks for looking.
