This workhorse banjo of the Gibson line is still in great condition after 50 years. It has some very light scratches on the back of the resonator and some normal finish checking, but all the hardware still shines like a new penny. It retains its original tuners including the friction 5th string tuner. If the new owner wants to change that out for ease of playability, we will be happy to accommodate. It has the wider “Les Paul” type frets which still have plenty of life left in them. And before you ask, yes, it has the thinner rim. But that certainly doesn’t affect its tone in a negative way… this banjo has all the pop and growl you could ever want. Comes with a newer hard shell case.
