These MB's make wonderful 5-string conversions. F.O.N. 8698-7 puts this one right around 1927. At 94 years old this one is in great condition. These came factory equipped with a 1/2 inch nickel silver hoop for a tone ring which sounds great and makes for a lightweight banjo. At some point a top co-rod was added and installed through the rim. Also a modern Presto tailpiece has been installed. the rest is all original with the exception of the head, bridge, and strings. The mahogany neck was just completed by Arthur Hatfield with a fantastic profile. Let me know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. Thanks for looking!
