AES Shelburne 1 banjo


This is a vintage AE Smith made in 1979 with beautiful maple wood. It was updated and the neck adjusted by a local banjo master and builder in Maryland. I rarely used it. It also has a Shubb 5th string capo on it so one can tune the 5th string when using the capo on the fretboard. It comes with the original hard case. Rim is 5/8 inch thick and laminated from New England sugar rock maple. It is fitted with a heavy brass tension hoop and a nuts and tension tailpiece, and a Weather King plastic head. The tone system consists of three separate pieces: a hand-spun bell brass nickel-plated outers hell and two solid brass inner pieces. IKt has a Bacon-style F.F. internal resonator, made of a double-laminated wood inner ring and a wood back plate with five cut-outs in the design of maple tree spinner seeds. It therefore has a rare internal resonator. It is finished with six coats of lacquer.

This is one great banjo for old time, folk or any kind of frailing. If I get no offers by late May or early June I am shipping it to the people who originally made it to sell at a much higher price in their store in Vermont.

I have just reduced the price even more!!
