This is a very clean 1923 Gibson TB-4 12" Kraske rim tenor--all original except the head. Fantastic 12" Kraske hollow rim, popular for converting to 5 string--look up Nora Brown videos for the one Seeders converted that she plays. It looks like it's a year old and plays like brand new. The trap door is easily removed. The neck, frets, and action are perfect. It's a 15 fret, 20 3/4" scale. It has the original pearloid nut,celluloid pickguard, armrest, and tailpiece. The original case is in good shape, fully functional. It includes the original "Joseph Rogers Sons XXX" calfskin head--the seam on the inside split long ago but might be repairable. I replaced it with a new 12" Balch calfskin head that's nearly identical in every way to the original. This is a great and unique sounding tenor. The 12" Kraske hollow rim Gibsons rarely come up for sale. Video link below, cheers!
