B&D Montana Silver Bell Tenor Banjo
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2011-07-04)
Price : US $1,567.
Here is for sale an old banjo in very good shape for its age and the fact that it was played regularly at one time. This banjo was left in the family by an uncle who past on a long time ago. It was stored in our home for about 25 years.
I know nothing about banjos, but I did talk with a couple of people in the know who encouraged me to list it on eBay. I was told that it was made sometime in the 1930's and that it is a tenor banjo. That is the extent of my knowledge. Sure, I was told a lot of technical details, but it all went by me. I posted a lot of picture for you to assess the condition of this banjo. If you need more photos, let me know. Here is what I can tell you in addition to the photos:
It will probably need a general cleanup and some polishing
It needs new strings
There is a bit of wear from playing it, but not much
The metal piece at the bottom left of the banjo has some dents
On the back of the base there is a superficial scratch
The case is solid, but worn from usage
Otherwise, I check it carefully and did not see any crack, chips, loose pieces, etc. The screws on the top and back of the neck are solid.
In the case pouch I found 2 new wooden pieces that are mounted at the bottom where the strings go over (???), one key with the inscription Bacon, probably for the bottom metal nuts, and one tuning gizmo (harmonica-like) with inscriptions ''M. HOHNER'S No. P9, (Tenor Banjo & Cello), Trutone Pitch pipe, TH
