Up for sale is my 1920's Majestic tenor banjo.

A little bit of history

19 fret tenor banjo from 1920ís made by the Puntolillo Company, New York, and later in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. Around 1924 Puntolillo began building S. S. Stewart branded banjos and did so for several years, the Stewart Wondertone models are Puntolillo products. Before the big 20ís tenor banjo boom he was making open back 17 fret models under the names The Bell and Princess and they had a different tone ring design than Puntolilloís later 1920ís 19 fret tenor banjos. In the 20ís, of course, he had his own Majestic line and also produced banjos named Regina and Symphony.

Its archtop tonering patent was issued in 1920 to Gaetano F. Puntolillo and it is this which gives this instrument its unique tonal qualities. I would put this banjo on a power with most professional level banjos, it has a sweet sustain with bass resonance and a rich soft tone. I have it set up with a white frosted top pre EPA Weatherking Remo head.

This banjo is in near mint condition except for a little bit of damage to the side of the resonator. It plays and sounds wonderful! Has Grover two tab tuners and a prewar Grover Presto tailpiece. All original everything.
