You are looking at a wonderful 1961 Gibson Mastertone TB-250 (Bow-Tie), 19 fret - 23" scale, tenor banjo in very good condition. It has all original parts (except the armrest) and features the archtop 4 hole tone ring with a 3 ply maple rim. The overall wood is mahogany with a sunburst on the resonator and neck. The neck attachment acorn nut, (above the single rod),is visible through the clear head. This is an extra indication of the banjo being original. The correct 'V' cut tailpiece is evident, also. The flange is the preferred one piece type. The tuning pegs work perfectly, the neck is straight and the banjo has been well cared for. The sound is, of course, terrific. Includes an older hard shell case. If more photos are needed email me. Any questions - please feel free to ask.
