Very clean ‘30 TB-1 (9543-29…Greg Earnest link below) that has been cut for long-skirt hi-profile Flathead tone-ring. Currently has a Sullivan V-35 installed w/ all its original metal & hide head. 1st gen fat-boy OPF in very good condition w/ way less “pull” than the vast majority of them. 4-lug resonator/rim. Added 2nd C-Rod and pre-war 2-pc arm-rest (originally shipped w/o one). Original tenor Grover Presto tailpiece has been replaced w/ another pre-war Presto t/p. Will ship (or hand deliver if not too far) in its original tenor HSC. $3950. Alternatively, can be purchased for $3500 w/ no tone-ring.
I’ll attach many photos and a video. The video is an attempt to demo its sound/tone, etc. The five string neck in the vid is not included nor is it for sale. It was taken off another banjo w/ a standard rim (.558). It had to be shimmed for playable action on this fat-boy (.645) rim.
Here’s a YouTube vid:
