Description

This is a 1934 Gibson Mandolin Banjo style 3 conversion.  The MB3 conversion banjos are definitely special and this has the best possible conversion parts.  The neck was made by Frank Neat and the tone ring is a Huber HR30 tone ring.

This has a 3 ply hard rock maple shell.  The neck and resonator are both maple and the resonator is gorgeous.  The tone ring and neck were fit to the banjo by Steve Huber which is a big plus.  This has nickel hardware which is all original other than a Presto tailpiece and the tone ring.  The flange is a one piece flange which is also original and is really flat.  It has a bit of pull but almost none.  This was originally a Mastertone banjo with a raised head tone ring which is another very nice feature.  The shells tend to be better on banjos that came out as Mastertones.

MB3 banjos happen to be rare and they resemble TB1's due to being straight grain maple.  This would be superior to a 1 because of the fact it was originally a mastertone.  The neck has a lot of curl in the maple which helps give it a more Granada type clarity up and down the neck.

This is a truly phenomenal banjo that is in great shape with fantastic parts.  This sounds incredible.  This includes a modern Gibson Hardshell Case.

Condition

This has the original finish which looks great.  The resonator is super clean.  The hardware is super clean as well.  I mentioned the flange shows almost no pull which is wonderful.  There is a bit of pitting in the flange and tension hoop but its minor.  The armest has some wear which can be seen in the pictures.  This has a clean neck and fretboard with frets that also show almost no wear.  There is a hint of wear on the first few frets but not much.  The rest are perfect.  There are spikes at the 7th, 9th and 10th frets.  This is definitely in fantastic shape. The Gibson case is worn cosmetically but is structurally solid.

Set Up

We professionally set up every banjo that comes through our shop.  This has a Huber frosted head by Remo which is set to 90 on a drum dial.  This has a Huber bridge and the banjo has correct intonation.  The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the action is set well.  This is also fully adjustable.  This is a fantastic example of a rare Pre War Gibson Banjo that is clean and has been set up to play and sound its best.
