Check out this 1977 Baldwin Ode tenor banjo in VG+ condition, recently released from the estate of a KC banjoist. It's a top-of-the line Series D, with premium features like a hand-carved walnut neck with rosewood & maple center strips, walnut resonator with concentric rings, and ebony fingerboard with lovely MOP inlays. The peghead and heel cap have ebony overlays. The rim is 7-ply maple with a flathead style brass tone ring. Engraved armrest. Very gently used, with almost no fret wear. Plays great and sounds like it should. This banjo has that sweet old Mastertone sound, yet projects a powerful clear voice that really cuts through when played hard. Just the thing for Dixieland or Irish bands! The finish on the neck looks like glass. Resonator is free of checking. Scale length is app. 22 5/8 and neck width is 1 1/4 at nut and 1 5/8 at pot. Gold plating has faded on the flange and ring (common on this model). Upgrades include a valuable Oettinger type tailpiece and a Farquhar bridge [none better!]. Like new 5-star inside frosted head. Ready to play. Would sound great in Irish tuning too. The original plush-lined case is also in VG+ condition. $1,895 or reasonable offer...email me and we'll discuss it. Thanks for looking.
