This is a really nice example of a Gibson archtop. The pot of this banjo was a 1963 TB-100 that has been cut and fitted with a 1950s Gibson 4-hole archtop tone ring. The resonator was re-skinned by Clancy Mullins to curly maple with concentric rings. The neck is by Ron Coleman (Earls5) here on Banjohangout. This neck has stainless steel frets and a terrific profile. The neck is in good shape, with a few marks here and there. It is currently set up with a low crown Pre EPA remo head and a 5/8 snuffy smith bridge and sounds really great. This banjo has terrific tone and could easily be set up more for the Stanley tone if desired. The tailpiece is a new Prucha 4 hump tailpiece. There is some fret wear on the first 2-4 frets, but nothing to address /no buzzing. No other issues with the banjo. There are a few handling marks on the banjo, but over, its in nice shape. 5th string spikes are installed at 7th and 9th frets and it ships in a modern “The Gibson” case in good condition. The pics show different tuners but I just put the bow tie tuners back on it and will edit the pics soon. No Trades please, but I will consider a reasonable offer.

Don’t hesitate to ask questions, request additional pictures, or a sound sample.
