ca. 1912 "The Dayton" 5 string Banjo EXC+ Here's another one from my personal collection that has been a 'keeper' for many years. In beautiful condition and with the unique metal head which gives it a distinctive deep sound. You can hear it in the video clip below. Laminated walnut and mahogany 5/8ths inch thick 11 3/4" rim with 28 brackets, one of which is missing. 26 1/2" scale length and an extended fingerboard giving it 26 frets. Attractive fretboard inlays and "The Dayton" inlaid on the peghead . Straight mahogany neck with good frets. Fricton tuning pegs function well. (loosen the screw, tune it a bit sharp, tighten the screw and adjust to pitch). The label is in fine shape with serial #809. NoKnot tailpiece. Chipboard case.
Price: $2250.00
