I would call this a porch or church banjo. This auction is for a handmade beautiful Vintage Custom 5-string Banjo. I picked this banjo up many years ago, it hung in my office for many years. I was told it came out of the hills of North Caroline from a gentleman that had it for over 40 years. He explained he believes it was handmade around 1945.
The banjo is 37 ½” long, with an 11” head, the neck is 25 ½” long and straight, with beautiful green inlay of stone. There are 22 frets are in very good shape. The banjo has an old skinhead that is great shape. I have completely gone over the instrument and have either corrected or fixed all of it short comings.
Please read all the information and view pictures before bidding. Sold as it, NOT RETURNS. Banjo does not come with a case. Currently its hanging on the wall and I play it while waiting for my fishing buddy. Buyer pays shipment.
