For Sale or Trade: 1928 Gibson TB-1 Pre-war Conversion






1928 was the year that a 4 year old Earl Scruggs took up the banjo. Great banjo, I have enjoyed it for years, but my tastes have moved to Stelling.

Note: The wooden arm rest, tuner and strap are not included. These will be removed prior to shipping in a used banjo case.
