This Gibson TB-5 F.O.N. 9029-26 dates to 1928 and has been converted to 5-string for over 40 years. The wonderful walnut neck was crafted in Style 5 fashion by Gary Price in the 1970's with the original tuners and mother of pearl buttons...including the 5th tuner button. The original heel cap from the tenor neck was also used on the new 5-string neck. The banjo shows normal patina for being 96 years old and has a modern Prucha double-hump tailpiece. If you have any questions or desire additional pictures, don't hesitate to ask. Thanks for looking! Here's a YouTube sample of this banjo: youtube.com/watch?v=CtiXzo8SIqk
