Here’s a 1930s Gibson banjo with an unmistakably traditional tone. Starting with a 1930s TB-11 rim with its 1-piece flange and robust projection and tonality, a skilled craftsman has added a 5-string “speed neck” of highly-figured flame maple with the "wreath" pattern inlay.
This instrument is very clean with its simple tone hoop and “blue” resonator with pearloid multi-colored stencil designed back. This is one of the rarer versions of the instrument with the design forming an “X” on the back. It's set up ready to play with terrific action and considerable volume.

$3,500.00 with newer hard case.
