A Celluloid survivor! This is an interesting banjo being that its oak rim is celluloid clad and in good un-restored condition with all it's original parts and original case. Once I cleaned only the celluloid I could see that it really didn't need anything else, just general cleaning. I patched a small tear in the skin head and is holding good tension with no issues. It is a very light and warm sounding banjo. It has flush Ivory frets. Thanks
