Alvarez Denver Belle Vintage Banjo
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-06-13)
Price : US $690.90
Alvarez Denver Belle was purchased new by the original owner in approx. 1978. Other than some wear on the head it is almost like new (just a couple of scuffs). It has a compensated bridge on it too. The action is very comfortable. The chrome could use a little better cleaning than I had time to do. I have installed new strings and a new tailpiece (exactly like what was on it ). The adjustment screw was broken on the old one. The Serial number inside the resonator is 49380. The carving on the neck heel is beautiful and the sound is awesome. This banjo has some weight to it. The original hard shell case is included along with a Kaiser Banjo Capo. The pictures do not do this banjo justice. These are hard to come by especially in this condition. I purchased it from the original owner. This banjo has spent most of it's time in the case. You won't be disappointed.
See the posted question on this item. It may be a 1980 instead of 1978. The previous owner may have gotten mixed up with his years.
