For your consideration is my most coveted Banjo of all time, the one I swore I would never sell. This all original Fairbanks Whyte Laydie was owned and played all over the world by the incomparable Otis Mitchell, Fairbanks/Vega endorsee and Vaudeville sensation. The banjo is as he left it, unmolested including the original frets. The Alligator custom made case is adorned with stickers of some of the places Otis and his review played including the Queen Mary. The case alone is worth many thousands of dollars and is in fine structural condition and has many years of life left. The banjo is structurally perfect with a straight neck, excellent low action and plays beautifully. There are no breaks, cracks or repairs. It sounds stupendous. It is is very good condition for a 110 year old banjo. This historic piece comes with photos, articles, advertisements, and a menu only some of which were photographed. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a banjo with provenance, owned by a bonafide Vaudeville Super Star
