1924 BACON BANJO MANDOLIN PEERLESS 8 Strings #12419
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-01-30)
Price : US $300.00
RE-LISTED WITH LOWER STARTING BID!!! LAST CHANCE!!
this vintage 1924 BACON PEERLESS open back banjo mandolin by The Bacon
Banjo Co. Inc Groton, Conn USA with it's original carrying case!
Serial #12419. NO RESERVE!!
Not only is this marked with the Jos. B. Rogers Jr
marking it has the ''Union Brand Warranted'' and the prior owner has
written her name on it (the original head!!) --Virgina Manning '28 (1928). Overall very good
condition with new strings. There are 2 head retaining clips missing, but this does not affect the sound or performance of the instrument at all, and these can easily be replaced. Other than the normal scuffs, there are
no further defects, and the darn thing looks, sounds, and plays GREAT!
The carrying case is lined with green velvet and has a small
compartment for storage. Handle is worn as shown in the photos but is
still securely attached. This is a terrific sweet find! The appraisal value of this instrument in the 2009 appraisal guide is over $600 in the condition that it is in. It will be packed very well for shipping, and the strings and head will be loosened to protect from climate changes.
Good luck bidding, and feel free to contact me with questions.
Winner must pay in full within 5 days of close of aution. I only accept paypal, money order, or certified check, but prefer paypal.
