Description

Japanese musical instruments from the 1970's were made with high quality standards and if a professional goes through these and sets these up they can be extraordinary.  This is a Lefty which is rare and for a left handed player this is really a fantastic option.

This has a thick multiply maple shell with a mahogany neck and resonator.  The hardware is nickel and is all original.  This has a 2 piece flange and a full size 20 hole tone ring.  The tailpiece is a clam shell tailpiece and this has an engraved one piece armrest.

The fretboard is rosewood and has a really nice Flying Eagle inlay pattern.  There is white binding on each side of the neck and resonator.  This is definitely a quality banjo that has been professionally cleaned and set up and would be a stellar banjo for a Left Handed player.  This also has a quality Gold Tone hardshell case.

These old Japanese Banjos are becoming more collectable and there is a Facebook Group to celebrate them.  Check out Vintage Banjos Made in Japan on Facebook!

Condition

This banjo is definitely in great shape and has been professionally cleaned at the Banjo Warehouse.  We disassembled the banjo and polished all of the metal to a bright shine.  The wood has been waxed and the fretboard has been cleaned and oiled.

There is some clouding in the finish on the back of the resonator which is pretty easy to see in the pictures.  That is basically the only sign of aging on here.  The metal and wood are all in great shape and the frets are also in really good condition.  The first few frets show a hint of wear but it's not much at all.  The rest of the frets look new.

This is definitely in great shape and the case is also clean.

Set Up

This has also been professionally set up at the Banjo Warehouse in Atlanta.  This has a new Remo frosted head which is set to 90 on a drum dial.  The bridge is a Grover Bridge and is set with correct intonation.  The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the action is set nicely.  This also is adjustable.  This banjo is a rare lefty that looks great, sounds great and is set up to play like butter.

This would be the perfect beginner banjo for a lefty but this is also a quality instrument that could be used by any level of player.
