Gibson TB-2 5 string Conversion

This 5 string conversion banjo has a walnut resonator and a walnut Huber speed neck with a rosewood fretboard and flying eagle inlay. The banjo has that old prewar style tone just dripping off of it and this also plays wonderfully. The banjo is in really good shape cosmetically with original finish that overall is in excellent shape and hardware that also looks great. This is definitely not mint but man is this clean with only minimal wear. This even has minimal wear in the frets, they are fat and round with a whole lot of life left in them. There are spikes already installed at the 7th-10th frets.
