BALDWIN ODE BANJO (circa 1972)

VINTAGE AMERICAN MADE BANJO

This is an extraordinary find, a nearly mint condition ODE 5-string banjo with the original hardshell case and tools.  The original warranty card (never mailed in) and the original care instructions are included inside the original envelope!  Minor scratches on the mahogany back, no wear on the back of the neck, nice pearl inlayed ODE logo inset into a thick rosewood veneer, heel of the neck is a thick rosewood veneer with center strips of rosewood/maple running through the neck, 1mm maple veneer under the rosewood fingerboard and headstock.  Perfectly straight neck (see pic) with pearl dot fingerboard inlay.  The head, rim, brackets, armrest, bridge, tailpiece, machine heads are all complete and 100% factory original.  'Boulder Colorado ODE'  appears on the inside rim as part of the mold with the model/serial # being stamped into the inside of the rim (see pics).   The celluloid binding on the mahogany resonator has nicely aged to a yellowish ivory color with some minor cracking (see photo).  Super rare and original metal BALDWIN peghead label, the dual label model (1971-1974). There has been no mods, changes or repairs to this instrument.

This banjo is considered by many players and collectors to be 'The Holy Grail' of banjos.  It is considered to be the best banjo, far surpassing Gibsons Mastertone and all other top quality banjos, then and now.&n
