Vintage Gold Star Banjo w/Hard Case - $1500 + $65 S/H (Mainland US only)

If you are looking for a vintage banjo that is still affordable, this might just be it! This archtop banjo has a surprisingly deep tone quality! Volume is excellent, and the sound and feel is very solid! Hearts and flowers inlay, mahogany neck and resonator (with double purfling inlaid), very minimal fret wear on just a few of the lower frets, both spikes and sliding 5th string capo. Bonus! There is a painting on the inside of the resonator! Older hardshell case has writing (painted) on it and looks old, but is certainly good enough to keep this banjo safe for normal travel and storage. Banjo has been completely setup for easy play and great tone! Please note: This banjo is on consignment and is non-returnable.
