Description

This is a banjo that we have had for years and I wanted to at least make it available.  This is all original and also has no issues so this would be awesome for a tenor player to clean up or a 5 string player to convert it.  This happens to be a rare example of a TB11 that has a reddish brown hue on the edge of the resonator and headstock.

This has a 3 ply hard rock maple shell.  The neck and resonator are made from a synthetic mother of pearl that was very popular in the 1930's.  There is white binding on each side of the neck and resonator and the fretboard also has the synthetic mother of pearl.  The hardware is nickel and that is all original including the one piece flange.  This has a one piece armrest and a rolled brass tone hoop.  The head is a skin head and could be original.  Typically we clean and set everything up but I have not done either.  This has every piece of built up gunk and vibe that a Pre War could have and I am going to let the next owner decide what to do with it.  This also includes the original case.

Condition

This is DIRTY.  The banjo is covered with years of age.  However there is little actual signs of use.  The resonator and neck have finish that looks great except for a small patch worn off of the back of the neck.  The resonator is not nicked and dinged up and the fretboard and headstock also look good.  The frets do have some wear but if this is converted to a 5 string that doesn't matter.  The hardware definitely has a lot of gunk and tarnish on it but to some people that is a good thing because some believe that helps the sound.  Whatever the case may be this is all original and this has a lot of potential.  In addition this is a rare version of this banjo.  The case is in good shape with something painted on the front.  The case does work and is functional.

This really is a cool find and if you want to have it converted I know luthiers that can build the neck and add a tone ring.
