Vintage mid to late 70's Ventura Model V-52 5-string banjo... Beautiful Burgundy color {Very similar in color to a 30's B & D I have}.. Copy of a Gibson Mastertone... Nice diamond type fretboard inlays {Similar to the Deering Deluxe inlays}.. Very good looking banjo overall.. Dual coordinating rods.. Dual leg armrest... Gibson style headstock w/ cross emblem similar to the 70's Gibson’s... Nice new gold geared tuners... Emerson Vintage Tone Power Bridge… Plays great & sounds very good.. Has a nice deep sound to it.. I had put a late 60’s or early 70’s Tone Ring in it, but it didn’t make a measurable difference, so I put the original back… {That kind of tells me that it’s probably a pretty good tone ring}… Frets are nice & smooth, but not worn... Typical multiply Rim & nice sounding Tone Ring{could be an upgraded ring, but don't know for sure}... Has typical scratches and dings for a 30+ year old banjo, & some tiny pitting at the chrome {mostly on the tension hoop & one large pit on the top of the armrest} .. Does have some chipping of the paint & clear-coat at the headstock near the tuners... Includes original hard-shell case... $375.00 OBO… More photos available.... This sounds as good or better and has more volume than the early 70's Ventura I have, that I've upgraded with a block rim & JLS -12 tone ring...
