Check Bottom of page for any updatesOk. First of all , I HATE getting rid of this. I have had it a lot of years.I know that I will probably never get another one like it the rest of my life.This is well worth $300 in parts alone.But on the other handI am not a banjo player , nor an expert on banjos.You can see though , that .''this'' banjo is in pretty darn good shape for being about 80 years old.My brother took it to a profesional and got some info.It was built in the 1920s -30s ?It has Mother-Of-Pearl-Toilet-Seat.LOOK IT UPThe head/skin is a real skinIt also appears that it has had VERY LITTLE PLAYING done on it.theres not wear on the frets,or fretboard that I can see.The case will come with this alsoI do not know if its the original , but It looks AWFULLY OLDIt will need someone who knows what they are doing to cover and repair it in spots.ATTENTION:THIS WILL MUST BE AS/IS.AFTER ALL IT AN ''ANTIQUE''Note:The flange should probably be replaced , due to cracks ,swelling and warpage. Im told that the metal these were made from was just not that good.I found new Flanges here:
It is , however playable like it is I suppose , but could use a new bridge and strings.The nut at the top looks like brass to me.I will add any additional information I can find later on.I STRONGLY URGE THE BUYER OF THIS TO PAY FOR SHIPPING INSURANCE !I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMADGES FROM SHIPPING!ALSO:I will not ship this untill ''ALL''payments have Cleared my account. I ONLY EXCEPT PAYPALGood Luck Bidding !
