Hi All,

I'm a professional bassist and I inherited this Banjolin, among other instruments, from my grandfather. I have taken this to Gruhn's in Nashville recently and he offered me $175 for it. In great condition, he said the price of these are at $600-650. Based on this guys condition, he said he would sell it for $400-450. So here it is for $125 less than Gruhn's projected price. The main reason for the less than great condition is that there is a slight twist in the neck on the bass side. I try to show that in one of the pictures. Despite this, it is still quite playable and does not fret out. Gruhn said this is frequently seen in these models. Other than that, there is a seam on the bottom edge of the body that needs glued that I also show in a picture. An extremely easy fix. Not to bad for around 90 years old. It's a fun little guy to play, and I certainly don't mind hanging on to it, but thought I would put it up for someone who might need or play it more. It looks great in my studio though. :)
