A 1930 "ish" tenor banjo of unknown make converted to a 5 string. it is set up and ready to play. The banjo sounds good and plays easy. You can listen to this banjo played in the clawhammer style by clicking on the link below. Tune is Booth Shot Lincoln. Key of A.
The 10" birdseye maple pot is all original including the skin head. There is some tarnish on the metal parts, but all in all in very good condtion.

Fretboard is 1 1/4" wide at the nut and 2" wide at the end. The banjo in at 4 lbs. Tthe total length of the banjo is 30 inches.
