HI. AND THANKS FOR LOOKING AT MY AD.

THIS IS A VERY NICE GOLD IIDA 5 STRING ARCH TOP RESONATOR BANJO MADE IN JAPAN. THIS IS THEIR TOP OF THEIR LINE BANJO

IT DOES HAVE A COUPLE OF COSMETIC ISSUES, AND THE REASON FOR THE LOWER PRICE. IT HAS SOME WEAR ON THE GOLD PLATING ON THE TENSION HOOP, TONE RING, AND FLANGE, AND A SMALL AMOUNT OF CROSION ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FLANGE PLATE. ALSO, THE BINDING ON THE RESONATOR HAS CRACKED IN SEVERAL PLACES. I'VE GLUED IT ALL BACK, BUT YOU CAN FEEL IT. JUST WANTED TO MENTION IT FOR FULL DISCLOSURE. NONE IF THE BINDING IS MISSING, JUST CRACKED AS A LOT OF BINDING
ON OLDER BANJOS DO.

THE NECK IS PERFECT WITH NO FRET WEAR, AND BINDING IS PERFECT.

THE GOLD PLAYING WAS VERY WORN ON THE ARM REST, AND TAILPIECE, AND I REPLACED BOTH WITH NEW GOLD ONES, AND UPGRADED THE TAILPIECE TO A GOLD KESHNER, WHICH I THINK IS THE BEST YOU CAN PUT ON AN ARCH TOP BANJO. THE ONLY OTHER CHANGES WERE A NEW GOTOH GOLD 5TH STRING TUNER, AND ONE OF MY OWN BIG FOOT BANJO BRIDGES, THAT MAKE IT A MONSTER.

IF YOU WANT A BANJO THAT WILL CUT THROUGH A JAM, THIS ONE WILL BE HEARD. THEY MIGHT ASK YOU TO LEAVE, BUT THEY WILL KNOW YOU'VE BEEN THERE.

IT COMES WITH A BRAND NEW CASE, AND IT'S READY TO GO OUT OF THE BOX WITH NICE LOW ACTION, AND SET UP TO PLAY EASILY.
