1929 Gibson TB1, one piece flange. This is an early opf style 1, "fatboy", from the 9486 batch. The banjo was shipped from the factory without an armrest like others in the batch. The resonator lugs and brackets are symmetrically placed.

The flange is pulled up, typical but not terrible. The tension hoop is a modern replacement. The resonator has a cosmetic issue where the inside wall was opened at the scarf joint, at the tailpiece end. The tenor neck was broken at the heel and repaired although not pretty. The back of the hardshell case is coming loose but is fine for shipping/storage.

$2450 plus shipping/insurance. No trades.
