Their price is crazy. Even without the refinishing and replating it would probably a $3000-$3500 banjo on the current market.

That’s probably an issue with a consignee. Gryphon is quite aware of the market.

Yeah, even converted with a high end 5 string neck, by a top Luthier it would'nt break $5000.

That very well could be the case. Do you know if all-original ball bearing Style 5 tenors ever sold for similar prices? Maybe before 2008?

I wouldn’t think so. I think the Irish tenor market has given them a boost, but not that big a one. Who knows?

Retrofret in Brooklyn NY has a 1925 -- been sitting there a LONG time. Has that beautiful "old" look.
