About the banjo: This early 20's Tubaphone #3 is a real mixed bag. It has the original neck and matching pot that looks to have been broken more than once. The "backstrap" is not original and looks to be covering up repair work underneath.

I worked with Kevin Enoch a few years ago to replace the finger board and associated inlays, install an adjustable truss rod, and replace the heel cap. The banjo now plays great, sounds better, and is a totally stable and reliable players grade instrument. The action is on the higher side though, so if you're an up-the-neck player this may not be the best instrument for you.

I tried to show both the good and the bad in my photos, but I'm happy to send more or videos of it being played. I'm not exactly sure how to price this, so feel free to message me if you're interested. I'm also interested in trades for guitars.

Thanks for looking!
