The Arthur E. Smith Banjo Company was founded by Mark Surgies and Katherine Spencer, two old-time banjo players experienced in the repair and building of banjos and guitars. In 1973 they began "Arthur Smith". Operating out of Shelburne MA, by 1978 they were known all over the country. They were in operation until 1980, so logical dating of this banjo is between 1973 and 1980.

This model is called the Northampton. It has some moderate wear on the back of the neck and normal plating wear. 5th string capo, arm rest and 5th string fine tuner. Has been set up here at the shop and plays great. very nice bottom end in the tone.
