An intriguing tenor banjo, this Bacon & Day Silver Bell has an 11" multi-ply maple rim with a Silver Bell tone ring. The 2-piece maple neck has a carved lion’s head on the heel and a bound rosewood fretboard with pearloid inlays. The wood resonator features a sunburst pearloid with floral designs on the back. This banjo needs some work (sold AS-IS, see Details section below), but overall it’s in very good-minus condition.   More Details...
