There is no marking on this banjo except for a serial number 592 on top of the dowel stick opening on the rim. The Peghead profile is from George Matthews and the serial number from late 1800 Very good quality and heavy Nickel plated brass spunover rim. 11 inches in diameter. The palting is in excellent condition and the 30 bracket shoes are original. I installed a new nickel plated brass tension hoop with new hooks and hook nuts. A new Fiberskin head and a new bridge. The black walnut neck is straight and in very good condition with the original frets. The neck is 27 1/4 inches scale. The Ivoroid pegs are original and work fine. Strung with Labella nylon banjo string, this vintage banjo has a great old time plunky sound with a lot of volume. Shipping and hardshell case included. ( Picked up at the shop and without the hardshell case reduces the price to $780,00) Plated Second Life Banjo No.1295-4 and ready for another century of music.
