This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2011-06-08)
Price : US $129.48
This is an 1880's J.H.Buckbee hanjo for parts or restoration. Buckbee was a NYC maker from approx. 1860 - 1897. 10 3/4'' head. The pot is missing much of it's original hardware (see photos). The pot is very discolored, but solid. The round dowel stick is not cracked. No tailpiece. The mahogany neck is straight and in good shape. Fifth peg hole is OK (see photo). Fingerboard is OK. I'm assuming this was a fretless at one time. Heel is stamped ''J.H.B.'' No nut. Cheap changed tuners. This is a worthy restoration project. Selling ''as is'' due to restoration work required to be made playable. I ship Fedex Ground exclusively within the US. I ship worldwide USPS International Priority Mail. Shipping will be very reasonable. Please E-mail for shipping quotes. Thanks for looking and best of luck!
