This is an early 1970's 5 string banjo made by Alvarez when they were making some of the best banjos in their history. This is a custom made banjo that has a heavy brass tone ring that is typically found only on highline banjos. The banjo plays and sounds great. It appears to be 100% original including the very nice hard shell case. The case does have wear on the handle but is otherwise excellent. The banjo has a straight neck and low action. There are no signs of damage or repairs. The finish on the back has some hazing and one of the butterly or bowtie inlays appears to have been replaced. You will not be disappointed with this banjo. Satisfaction is guaranteed minus return shipping. Please see my feedback to assure that you can bid in confidence.
