This TB-3 F.O.N. 8165-25 was just converted by Robin Smith. The pot assembly is all original but with a modern presto tail piece and a new "period correct" Gill resonator. This banjo has the typical "sweet" tone associated with this model. The neck was done to specs with the diamonds and squares inlay and a beautiful satin finish along with prewar Grover "pancake" tuners. The resonator is satin finish as well. It is set up with a 5/8 bridge and super easy to play. If you have any questions about this banjo, don't hesitate to ask. Ships in a new Superior hard case.
