Revised, more in-depth description:


Now that that's out of the way, here's the goods: 1977 Ibanez Artist 593 FB flattop, in original hard case.  All-original except for the head, which I replaced many years ago.  I bought this little gem back in the early 90s and it was in pristine condition, virtually unused.  A heavy, exceptionally well-made Mastertone clone, right down to the tone ring, which gives the banjo plenty of volume and sustain.  I only played this banjo for a year or two, then I got a 1959 Mastertone for my (limited) bluegrass picking......I'm a frailer by nature.  Shortly after a bit of tinkering, back into the case this little beauty went and it's rested virtually untouched for at least a dozen years now.


Serial number is stamped on the back of the headstock: C777190.


Oh yeah.....just to be clear: the strap in the photos is NOT included! (Yeah, it may seem trival, but I'm gonna keep it for sentimental reasons....)


I could go on and on about how gorgeous the banjo is, but I'll let the photos speak for themselves.  I just now tuned it up (it currently has medium-gauge strings on it) and it plays like a charm.  The neck is straight as an arrow and all the inlays (headstock%2
