This Gibson made Kel Kroydon TB-11 was made in the 1930's and has been converted to a 5-string by Don Bryant with a new mahogany neck. Don makes one of the best necks available today. This one shows beautiful mahogany grain and the "Crowe 75" style inlay. The pot has all of the original hardware with plenty of patina and paint wear on the resonator. The armrest is almost down to complete brass but I wouldn't re-plate. An extra modern armrest is included. I like the look. The outer edge of the flange was cracked and has been repaired (see pics) and is barely noticeable on the top side. The flange was not compromised. There is a modern Gibson Presto tailpiece installed and the rim has been cut to accommodate a Sloan 20-hole tone ring. 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=NRwdkK93VRI
