A C Fairbanks No 4 Special
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-03-08)
Price : US $665.00
1901 A.C. Fairbanks No.4 Special serial # 20118 for auction. This banjo is in extremely good condition for its age. Everything is intact and seems to be original equipment. The fretboard was replaced about 10 years ago. I'm not sure who did it, but he did a fantastic job. I've compared it to other 1901's and the look is spot on. Needless to say, there is very little, if any fretwear. Calfskin head is in perfect condition. Tuners work very well. Original tailpiece. There is an armrest that was added to the banjo. Could be easily removed if desired. Still has the original case. Its covered in duct tape but still does the job. The neck of the banjo is excellent. On the left side heel, it is stamped as follows: SEPT FIRST NINETEEN HUNDRED AND ONE. I tried to show this in one of the pictures. Its a great little banjo and plays like a dream. It would be a wonderful addition for any Fairbanks collectors. I set the reserve at a price I feel is fair for this instrument. I will try my best to answer any questions you might have. I'm not a Fairbanks expert by any means, but I know theres some great resources for Fairbanks infromation on the internet. I will ship in the U.S. for $35.00. PayPal is preferred. Good luck bidding.
