This is a 5-string Mastertone conversion banjo. It has had some work done to it but it definitely has that Mastertone sound. I bought it on Reverb and it had a 5-string neck built for it, but I had one built by a Woodstock, NY luthier. It's a curly maple wide taper 12" radiused neck with 4 Keith tuners and a Five-Star 5th string tuner, ebony fingerboard with Florentine inlay.

The pot is an original maple rim with a two-piece flange, prewar Presto tailpiece, flathead Ed Sullivan tone ring and Purcell double radiused banjo bridge. It was professionally set up recently.

I have the original tenor neck and ball-bearing tone ring that I will include if you want them. They will ship separately as they are not with me here in CO. If you are in the Denver area, shoot me a message and I'd be happy to let you try it out.

No reasonable offers refused. Contact me via hangout and we can speak further.
