 This auction is for a vintage early 1920's made in USA Stromberg-Voisinet Toneking Tenor banjo. I don't play banjo, but I bought this one from the guy who's grandfather passed away and left this beauty, because I could see a real
quality instrument. Every little detail, all the pearloid stuff, inlays, wood carving, all the metal parts and good wood, etc... I took it to my luthier and he looked it all over and confirmed that it's one of those from the begining of the last century when just a couple of companies were making instruments for many brands like Vega, Paramont and others. This one has a Stromber-Voisinet sticker inside as you can see from the picture. My luthier said that I should
mention that this banjo has 19 frets, very nice geared planetary tuners, Waverly style tailpiece, tone ring( you should be able to see it at the close up on one of the pictures) and a lot of the other high end appointments.
It looks like everything is original. The condition is actually pretty amazing for almost a 100 year old instrument! Even the action is pretty low, so even I don't play banjo I tuned it like the four highest guitar strings
and had a blast playing it:) My luthier also said that it's one of the loudest banjos he've ever heard. Comes with the original harshell case which is a little bid up but is doing it's job:) One side of the handle broke off
but can be easily repaired. That's all the info I know about this vintage beauty so please do your research.  Buyer will pay $35 shipping cost within US and $99 should cover most of
the internat
