1926 TB-3 Gibson Mastertone, with the tenor neck, case, original ball bearing tone ring, ball bearings and springs.

IN RESPONSE TO SEVERAL QUESTIONS: THE TOP OF THE RIM IS NOT MODIFIED IN ANY WAY - SEE PHOTOS - ALL OF THE SPRINGS, BALLS AND WASHERS ARE PRESENT - SEE PHOTO - ROBIN SMITH ADDED BINDING TO THE RESONATOR, OUTSTANDING WORK - SEE PHOTOS

THREE BANJOS IN ONE! FLATHEAD 5 STRING; BALL BEARING RAISED HEAD 5 STRING; TENOR BANJO

Robin Smith masterfully converted this ball bearing tenor into a 5-string, with a 20-hole Heartland flathead ring. The neck is nicely figured maple, with a Flying Eagle inlay pattern. Original hex resonator screws replaced with knurled thumbscrews. Waverly two band tuners on the peghead and the fifth is a highly desirable vintage Kroll. The neck and banjo overall are in excellent condition. Check out the pictures.

The shape of the neck and it's playability are hard to believe. Represents Robin's fabulous craftsmanship at it's best.

The banjo has an incredible range of tone and balance, with responsive and volume to spare.

Glad to answer any questions.
