Here is a RARE, original 1890s John C. Haynes, The Lewis, Style 1, 5 string banjo. This has the complete set of original Cobra Hooks with the Fairbanks & Cole Nuts! (which are worth a small fortune) Has the original tailpiece. Nice action, straight neck. Plays and sounds great! This banjo features a unique rim design that can best be described as a metal Ashborn-style pot with a flared-flange. The 25-1/8" inch scale, with a cherry neck and colorful pearl inlays in the pearwood board. The dowel-stick comes to rest in a metal base, and thus does not require adjustment or tightening from the tailpiece end of the banjo. Has also the original neck joint hardware, which is unique to this banjo.

Bernunzio has the exact banjo for $1150!
