MINT 1960's Bacon Long Neck Open Back Folk Banjo
I purchased this banjo in 2020 from David Bernz, Pete Seeger's producer from later in life though Jake's Main Street Music in Beacon, NY.
When I purchased it, it had no capo on the 5th, so I really think no one ever played it. They installed the 5th string Shubb capo for me and also put the eye hook in it for me, cause hey that's what Pete did.
I also never got around to playing it, I had a stroke. It needs to go to a home where someone can appreciate it.
I paid $1020 for *just* the banjo, I have original receipts for interested buyers. I am offering at a loss to offset shipping costs.
