Here’s a 1930s Gibson banjo with unmistakably traditional tone. Starting with a 1930s TB-11 rim with its 1-piece flange and robust projection and tonality, a skilled craftsman has added a 5-string “speed neck” of highly-figured flame maple with the "wreath" pattern inlay. The resonator features the rare "X" patterned decoration.
This instrument is very clean with the exception of a short piece of binding that has been re-glued and an extremely small crack in the resonator flange. It has the tone hoop and “blue” resonator with pearloid multi-colored stencil designed back. It's set up ready to play with terrific action and considerable volume.
