Gibson Florentine Bass from the collection of Scott Chinery and featured in the 1930 Gibson Catalogue. This all maple banjo features a gigantic 22 inch head with original skin and bridge. The construction is tube and plate with all metal hardware finished in gun metal. The peghead is pearloid with rhinestones in the style of the Florentine banjos. This fantastic find would be a great addition to any Gibson collection. It is perhaps the only one ever made. Museum quality!!!
