According to the serial number 948836 this Gibson dates to 1967. This banjo has all of its original chrome plated hardware and an added Presto tailpiece. The rim is a full thickness 3-ply maple and has been fitted with a long skirt Sloan 20-hole flathead ring serial #1217. Usually a late 60's Gibson has a thin rim and bulky neck but that's not the case with this one. The neck has a very comfortable profile and a speed neck finish. Also the old tuners were replaced with Waverly V-2's and 5th string spikes are installed at 7, 8, and 9th frets. At some point a sliding capo was removed and the holes filled. The frets are in great shape and this banjo is rearing to go! It ships in a black hard case.
