TODAY I AM LISTING WHAT IS BELIEVED TO BE A 1920'S VINTAGE LANGE BANNER BLUE 4-STRING TENOR BANJO.  I AM NOT A DEALER OR AN AFICIONADO, SO I WILL CAREFULLY EXPLAIN ITS CONDITION AND, AS YOU CAN SEE, I HAVE PROVIDED LOTS OF PICTURES.  THE WOOD AND ITS FINISH ARE IN VERY GOOD SHAPE WITH PLENTY OF SHINE.  THERE IS A 3-INCH SPOT ON THE BACK OF THE RESONATOR WHERE THE FINISH IS A BIT DARKER AND YOU CAN SEE BUT NOT FEEL SOME CHECKING IN IT.  THE NECK AND FRET BOARD ARE IN VERY NICE SHAPE WITH NO EVIDENCE OF DAMAGE OR REPAIR.  THE KEYS ALL TURN AND HOLD THEIR POSITION REASONABLY WELL.  THE METAL WORK ON THE BANJO AND THE RESONATOR IS IN VERY CLEAN AND ORIGINAL SHAPE.  ONE OF THE BOLTS THAT HOLD THE RESONATOR ON IS MISSING A WASHER. THE  HEAD IS GENUINE CALFSKIN AND IS MARKED ''JOS. B. ROGERS, JR.''  FROM WHAT I'VE RESEARCHED, THIS HEAD COST DOUBLE WHAT A TYPICAL BANJO HEAD COST DUE TO THE WORKMANSHIP AND QUALITY CALFSKIN THAT WAS USED.  THE CALFSKIN IS SOMEWHAT DIRTY AND HAS WHAT APPEAR TO BE ABOUT 15-20 SMALL WATER STAINS ON IT.  THE WOOD FRAME FOR THE HEAD HAS TWO VISIBLE CRACKS THAT RUN LENGTHWISE  AND ARE ABOUT 2'' EACH (SEE PICTURES 10 &11).  THEY DON'T APPEAR TO HURT THE INTEGRITY OF THE FRAME OR HINDER THE SOUND.  THE CASE IS INCLUDED BUT IS IN VERY  ROUGH SHAPE.


I SAW THIS AT AN ESTATE SALE AND CLEANED IT UP A BIT AND HAD IT RESTRUNG.  PLEASE DON'T BID UNLESS YOU INTEND TO B


Sold ! This banjo is sold (sold on 2011-01-28)
