Experience the Elderly Difference
If this banjo could talk, I'm betting it would have an interesting story to tell.  Original neck was replaced with c.1890 Dobson neck long ago (fingerboard is dis-integrating, missing inlays). Metal clad maple rim, No Knot tailpiece, Champion tuners.  NO CASE.   FC but needs much work (replace fingerboard and headstock overlay, dowel stick reset,
replace 5th string peg, replace missing inlays, clean, restring and setup, etc. - sold AS-IS).
