Very fancy late 1880's/early 1890's John H. Parker banjo. Dowel stick stamped on all four sides "John H. Parker, Montreal, The Perfection, #647". It's very obviously a Fairbanks/Cole banjo used and repurposed by Parker. Has really fancy inlay work around the rim, beautiful pearl work on the fingerboard, and a beautiful pearl rose in the peghead. Also has a metal tone ring you can see underneath the hide on the inside.

11.5" pot, 25.75" scale, original hide head. Really wonderful deep, warm, and tubby sounding banjo.

Happy to ship anywhere via UPS. Paypal accepted.
