Beautiful, Very good condition RC Allen 22 fret Plectrum 4 string banjo. Straight neck. Custom cowboy headstock inlay. Looks like solid curly walnut resonator. Sounds great. No appreciable fretwear. Looks mostly unplayed. Will ship insured for free with full price or close to full price sale.
This is a heavy, professionally built USA materials, USA made, vintage instrument. This would cost $2-$3,000 to have built today.
