Here's a nice one-piece-flange TB-1 with four resonator lugs as seen on the Mastertone models. There is no armrest and, like most four-lug style 1 banjos, this one was probably shipped without one. It also features the unusual "Nick Lucas" inlay pattern used only on a couple of lots of TB-1s. Everything is original with the exception of a missing tailpiece cover. There is a minor bulging out of the resonator veneer at about 5:00 as you face the banjo, but it doesn't show up in the photos. The rim is very round. The nut has had extra string slots filed and the action as a tenor is unplayably low, but of course for conversion purposes that's all irrelevant. This one comes with the original case, the lid of which is holding on by one hinge. Be sure to visit the "more info" link for full photos. Thanks for looking!
