Shipping calculated at checkout.

No sales tax for customers outside California.

I am not sure of the origin of this banjo, but it is clearly vintage and likely from the 1930s or 40s.  Someone attached the Elton resonator years ago, adding extra screw holes on the back of the rim.  The tailpiece is for a 5 string banjo but it works just fine.  We added new strings.

Comes in a nice, 1930s or 40s hard case.
