Description

The 1970's in Japan was a time where the Japanese were striving and succeeding in building better instruments than Americans.  This is a great value on a strong banjo that has been set up to perform at it's best.

This has a rosewood neck and resonator that has gorgeous grain and was probably Brazilian.  At that time the Japanese were using Brazilian Rosewood on a LOT of their banjos.  The fretboard has a bowtie inlay pattern.  This has nickel hardware that looks fantastic.  The tone ring is a 20 hole tone ring which is a big plus and really helps the sound.  Another important piece is the one piece flange.  This banjo definitely has good tone and volume from some premium parts.

This has a new two piece armrest, a new tailpiece and new tuning keys.  The 5th string now has a geared 5th string tuner. All of these are upgrades to the originals and also help the sound.  Finally this has an original hardshell case.

This is a solid banjo for the money and this will definitely give someone a quality instrument they will enjoy.

Condition

This is in great shape and it has been professionally cleaned in our shop.  The banjo has been disassembled and we buffed all of the metal with a high powered buffer and waxed the wood.  This banjo looks basically new.  The hardware is shining bright and the wood has a nice glow.  The neck and fretboard are also in great shape and the frets look nearly untouched.  There is a 5th string capo installed.  This is a clean banjo that looks fantastic with a clean hardshell case.

Set Up

We professionally set up every Banjo that comes through our shop.  This has a new Remo frosted head which is set to 90 on a drum dial.  The bridge is a Grover Bridge and this has correct intonation.  The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the action is set nicely.  This also is adjustable.

This is a great banjo that has been professionally cleaned and set up to make it look, play and sound its best!  Check out Banjo Warehouse for all sorts of interesting New, Used and Vintage Banjos for Sale.
