This is a beautiful original five string A.C. Fairbanks with the ever-so desirable 'Electric' tonering. The classic combination: 10 3/4" pot, 26" scale neck. The neck has a very interesting inlay scheme that I've never seen on another Fairbanks with large MOP dots and just a couple nicely engraved inlays. The neck is all-original except for the geared tuners (with vintage ivoroid buttons). Brand new skin head, all original hardware. It has a low bridge to facilitate clawhammer playing with steel strings (and plays great as such) but could easily switch use nylon/gut strings and a higher bridge. Comes in the pictured 1970s HSC (great condition except the vinyl is lifting in two spots near the handle).
Note: I do NOT accept returns. Please do not consider this banjo if that's a problem for you.
