I'm selling a late '30s Clifford Essex Concert Grand with the large mother of pearl block inlays. These are top of the line English Whyte Laydie copies with heavier hardware than the American banjos. Recent refret with period-size frets. As Clifford Essex afficionados know, the resonators on these eventually break due to the way they were constructed. The resonator on this banjo finally gave out about a month ago and will need to be re-glued if one wants to use it. I personally think this banjo sounds best as an open back, and if one desired to use it as such the flange is easily removed. $1000 as-is.


United States, LA, 70005
