I am the original owner of this 1974 OME Grubstake 5sting banjo.
Resonator back, great shape. All original.
Very good condition. all original - Light resonator banjo - great intermediate banjo for a student or second banjo for an experienced player. Nice bright sound - good loud resonator banjo for folk or old-timey styles. Not a particularly loud bluegrass banjo, but has good sound and plays great. Friction tuner on fifth string, planetary tuners on headstock. Single coordinator rod, rosewood fretboard, 1/2" rim, brass hoop tone ring. Tortoise style binding on resonator - mahogany neck and resonator. Includes hard shell case.
$900 or best offer, and whatever it will take to ship.
I have taken meticulous care of this instrument for the last 35 years...hate to sell but have not played much in years and it is time to go. (and I need money !)
