Here's a great early 30's Kel Kroydon KK-10 by Gibson. The Kel Kroydon banjos were made by Gibson for specific retailers during this period with all of the normal Gibson parts. Here's a link regarding another KK-10 from Greg Earnest's site:

This particular KK-10 has all of the original pre-war hardware minus the tail-piece which has been replaced with a Prucha "Presto". Also modern dual coordinator rods have been installed. This banjo also has the Gibson label on the rim. The original resonator still looks great. The tone ring is a Blaylock nickel plated 20-hole flathead. The mahogany neck was made by Ronnie Bales using the original KK peg head overlay. The fret board is ebony with the KK-10 inlay. 5th string spikes are at 7th & 9th frets. This banjo is set up and ready to go with Waverly 2-band tuners, a Remo "wagon wheel" head, and McPeake bridge. It ships in a new Guardian Deluxe case.
