Alvarez Silver Belle 5 string banjo sounds great
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-12-15)
Price : US $482.00
Wonderful Alvarez Silver Belle 5-string banjo in great condition.
Model 4293 Serial #4242
Japanese made, probably dating from late 70s to mid 80s.
This is a very very good sounding banjo, and I am confident there is no rival in its price range.
If you have been playing any entry or mid level banjo, the alvarez tone will absolutely floor you!
Also has a built-in 5th string capo which is useful for changing keys easily.
Pretty inlays all down the neck and head.
Tuners are all planetary, including 5th string.
Cosmetically in good condition w/ some small scuffs/nicks on the resonator (pictured below); nothing serious.
Auction includes hardshell heavy duty case w/ red plush lining.
plays, sounds, and looks great! This is a very well-built, solid banjo that was made to last a lifetime or maybe several.
I will take the bridge off to ship it.
sorry about the shipping price but its heavy!
