Vintage B&D Super Banjo Bacon and Day Super Banjo
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-10-31)
Price : US $728.00
Up for auction is a vintage Bacon and Day Super Banjo. This is from the 1920's. This is a 17 fret tenor that would be great for Irish Banjo Style playing. This banjo was not made with a resonator. These has a flat wooden disk that fit into the back of the rim. This tended to kill the sound so most everyone took it out and threw it away. I have seen more than a few of these banjos and they never have the wooden back plate. This banjo is in real nice condition. It is set up and playing. It has a nice bright sound. The neck is straight and the string action is very good. This has the SilverBell Tone Ring. All the hardware is original with the exception of one hook and and one nut are not matching. The tuners are original Patent Pending Planets with a newer set of buttons ....... Very cool vintage rare banjo with no reserve, high bidder wins it. Winner to pay $35.00 dollars shipping in the lower 48 states. Good luck bidding and thanks for looking...
