                                          Up for bid here is a Kent open back, exact age unkown but looks to be from the fifties or early sixties? This banjo is very structuraly sound and has no repairs or issues. It has been cleaned, reassembled and set-up with a new First Quality head, a new bridge, and strings. It sounds great and plays cleanly up the neck with a fairly nice action. The neck is a substantial hunk of wood with its original black finish and has a fat ''boat shape'' contour and is straight as an arrow. The fingerboard and frets are in great condition.  This neck feels rigid, (like a baseball bat), and I believe this banjo's good tone can be atributed to this nice hefty neck. Another reason would be the thick, cast alloy tone rim.  This is, (I think), some type of aluminum alloy, highly polished on the outside, and about 1/4'' thick. All parts are original and the banjos overall condition is very good. It is a nice example of what I believe to be a ''Kay manufactured'' instrument.  Please view the photo's, ask any questions. There is no case, but it will be well packed and I'll ship it anywhere in the lower 48 for a flat rate $40.00 I ONLY SHIP TO TH
