Original 5 string Fairbanks-Vega open back banjo owned by Adam Hurt. He used it to record most tracks on his first CD "Intrigue." I bought it from him in the Summer of 2006. The banjo has a 10 15/16 size pot. It is outfitted with a skin head, no knot tailpiece and an after market hot dog armrest. Hard shell case included. The serial # is 38550 which dates it @1919. The tone is sweet and balanced. A detailed letter of provenance, comes from Adam, detailing his time with the instrument. It was his first professional grade banjo. I have enjoyed owning and playing it for almost 15 years.
Price is $2600 plus shipping.
