This is a circa 1922 Bacon and Day Tenor ( 7686 ) banjo that was originally a #1 - now with EXTENSIVE customization. It should be about a #6.

I spent about 100 hours customizing this banjo. The major metal parts are all hand engraved (by Ron Chasey) , with gold plated parts. The heel has been carved. I in-layed an extensive amount of pearl (back of peg head, resonator, wooden rim, and heel. I also engraved almost all of the pearl, even the fret board inlays. ( B& D rarely did any ingraving.) I believe the head is new and there is a Farquhar bridge and Ottenger tail piece

You need to see the photos. It now should be about a number 6.
