Experience the Elderly Difference
From the 1920s, this Ludwig Riviera Plectrum Banjo is a vintage piece requiring some attention to restore it to top playing condition. It features a walnut neck and resonator, and a metal pot with an integral flange and tone ring. Currently, this banjo is in Very Good Condition (VGC) except for needing work such as heat straightening the neck and dressing the frets. It plays okay but is sold AS-IS. Note: NO CASE is included.
