Epiphone made banjos in the 1920's competing with Gibson. Some years pasted and Gibson bought Epiphone and commissioned these banjos in 80-90's. It is a merging of the Epi & Gibson design but made offshore. I will put this banjo's sound, play ability and looks up against any of the comparably priced or even higher priced Recording King, Gold Star, Gold Tone models on the market today. I am selling this one to thin the herd. Remo head is calibrated to 90 using drum dial and it really pops. Installed a Shubb 5-string capo $50 value. Very little fret wear. Note the thick rim and heavy wall on the resonator. $25 strap included I got from Banjo Ben. Nice, plush original case in great shape.
This banjo is a Hoss and will hold it's own in any jam session. Check out Youtube video link for sound byte. If you are looking for a step up from your first banjo or need a top sounding backup to your best banjo, look no further. I have bought and sold banjos on Banjo Hangout several times and encourage you to check my profile and rating. I put return conditions for this sale to ease your mind but I am confident you will keep it.
