For sale is this nice 2002 Osborne Chief. This is a great banjo with a lot of power (sound clips available upon request). I have had this banjo for awhile and it has always done a great job on stage. It looks good, too!
This particular Osborne Chief features the hearts and flowers inlay. I was also told upon purchase that it features a Huber tone ring. Iíve never had this banjo apart to verify this, but have always been told that Huber tone rings are present in the early Chiefs.
The banjo appears to be all original to me. It also includes the original paperwork, strap, and capo. It comes with a guardian/superior type case with a green interior.
The only issue with this banjo is cosmetic. There is some scratching and denting in resonator. This is only present in the clear coat and does not go into the wood. It is not very visible and can only be seen when held under direct light.
If you have any questions about this banjo, or would like to see it, please reach out to me anytime.
