Gently used Hondo Banjo
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2011-05-07)
Price : US $102.50
Up for auction is a gently used Hondo Banjo! I rescued this banjo from a customer of mine who was getting rid of it during a renovation. I think they bought the banjo for their son years ago and it was barely used.
The banjo is in great shape. The back of the body has a few white scuff marks. The neck is very straight with a few minor dings and scuffs. The head is in excellent shape with only minor marks. I'm no banjo expert but I would say the instrument is in very good condition.
There is a small sticker that reads HB5A. I'm unsure if this is the model number. Google search implies it's the model number and I'm guessing the instrument is 10-20 years old. Hondo no longer exists.
The strings are old and need replacement. I broke one of them while trying to tune it.
I think with a fresh set a strings, a little polish, and some minor adjustment it will make a fine beginner or backup banjo.
Continental USA only please.
