Vintage Ludwig Syncopator Tenor Banjo Project/Tailpiece
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2010-10-03)
Price : US $125.00
You are bidding on a Ludwig Syncopator Tenor Banjo for parts or potential restoration. It is missing at least the hoop, head, gears, and nut - and only includes what is pictured. I believe this to be a 1930's Banjo as the Pat Pending numbers read 1 12 33, which I assume is the date of the Patent application. The condition of the parts included is decent considering the age - the exceptions being the warp in the metal ring (see pics) and some extra routing in the wood under where one of the tuners would go on the headstock (would likely be invisible after new tuners are installed). The headstock veneer is quite cool and the neck is in good shape being pretty straight - and it is unattached to the body. The resonator is also in really nice shape with some fancy marquetry and the original finish, and the tailpiece says ''Ludwig USA'' and is probably the most valuable part of this auction. Please ask all questions before bidding, I am not a banjo person but will do my best to answer and will post the responses. Buyer to include $20 for insured UPS Ground to the lower 48 States, other locations may vary. This is a No Reserve Auction so the Buy It Now option is only available to the first bidder. Thanks for looking, and good luck.
