For Sale £265.
Chinese made banjo 1940's
With thick alumimium hoop, tension ring and shoes, with 16 chrome hooks. The fingerboard is mahogany and has 12 brass frets that rise high making it, I presume, to be played with a slide. The armrest is silver, shaped like a butterfly with piercings and the tailpiece cover also is silver. The makers name and address (Canton) is on a brass plate at the back of the peg head and on the case- it is all original apart from the bridge and it is in the original manufacturers hard shell case.
