Nice looking, great sounding vintage banjo. Manufactured by STROMBERG-VOISINETTE, which became the KAY Co. in 1931. S-V made banjos for many different jobbers and wholesalers from 1890 until 1931 . Their banjos can be identified by the peghead shape and cast flange with alternating perforation pattern (Reference source: mugwumps.com/NoNameBanjos.html ). Neck has carving on the heel and back of peghead. The fingerboard and peghead are overlaid with pearloid that is in very good condition. The neck is straight and the action is fast and smooth. The geared tuning machines are GROVER ''2-tab'', which work smooth and hold tension well. The tailpiece and armrest are non-original, but all the other hardware is original and in very good condition. The cast flange is not warped and has no cracks. Resonator is very heavy and thick,
