Clean Vintage Clarophone 4 String Irish Tenor Banjo
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-09-24)
Price : US $148.50
This is a good playing Clarophone. It has a new Elite amber head and a bone bridge. The tuners are newer geared tuners that are a lot easier to use than the friction tuners. It has 17 frets and a 20 1/2 inch scale length (which is about the same as some Baritone Ukuleles). The neck is nice and straight and the frets show very little wear. It does have a slightly different sound than most openback banjos in that the sound holes are in the side of the pot. It is currently tuned EBGD. There are 2 cosmetic cracks on the veneer of the peg head. If you like the sound of the Clarophones this one is set up nice. I can include the totally worn out soft case that came with it if you want but personally I would suggest a new case. If you would like to try the banjo out first it is at my home up in Los Osos. I am currently running a glass bottom boat in Redondo on most weekends so if you would like to pick it up you can choose either location or I can meet you for a drop off on 101.
