A great 1921 Bacon Orchestra Style C open back banjo
Rare original 5 string model from Groton, Connecticut. Possibly Lange-made for Bacon. This banjo is a great player, no tone ring but a beveled top for a sharp woody tone, and it's loud.
 The solid mahogany neck is dead straight with a slight V contour, the ebony fingerboard has some stable dryness cracking and simple pearl dot inlay. See the picture for detail of the cracking, it is glued and stable. Frets have very little wear. The tuners are replacement friction type and there are screw holes drilled from previous tuners. Nut width is 1 1/4''.
 The rim is laminated multi ply. The maple rim cap has cracked a bit and two pieces are missing, does not affect playability. The hardware and rare Bacon tailpiece are 100% original. 10 15/16'' Renaissance head.
Sale includes a bump style hardshell case.
 This is a great simple vintage Old Time player, loud enough to keep up in a jam with a sweet punchy tone.
thanks for looking.
Please ask questions as this will be a final sale.
buyers outside the Continental US assume all responsibility for the package when it leaves the US.
