1934 Gibson TB1 5 string Banjo

This is a gorgeous example of a one piece flange Gibson TB1 5 string conversion banjo.  This has been inspected and set up here at the Banjo Warehouse.

ALL OF OUR SALES INCLUDE A 7 DAY FULL SATISFACTION GUARANTEE

Description

This is a gorgeous TB1 with all original parts that has been converted with a Sullivan High Profile 20 hole tone ring and a neck made by Frank Neat.  This is about as good of a conversion banjo as you can get.

The banjo is made with a maple resonator and nickel hardware.  This has a 3 ply hard rock maple shell.  The neck is also maple and this has a rosewood fretboard.  The fretboard has a Hearts and Flowers inlay pattern which looks great.  There is white binding on each side of the neck and resonator.  This has a newer Presto Tailpiece but the original tailpiece is included.  Original one piece flange and all original hardware.  The flange has really little bowing and is a very flat flange.  This is absolutely gorgeous and also includes a hardshell case.

This was once sold by Jim Mills and includes the Certificate of Authenticity from Jim Mills.

Condition

This is definitely clean.  The resonator is remarkably clean especially for the age.  The hardware looks fantastic and I don't believe it has been professionally cleaned.  The neck and fretboard are also clean and this has clean and fat frets.  There are spikes at frets 7-10.  This is gorgeous and this also has a clean case.

Set Up

This has been professionally set up here at the Banjo Warehouse.  This has a new Huber frosted head by Remo.  The bridge is a no name bridge with an ebony cap.  The banjo has new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings.  The head has been set to 90 on a drum dial.  The neck is set up with nice action which is adjustable and correct intonation.  This is not only a clean and original example of this banjo this is set up to play and sound fantastic.  This is one of the nicest TB1's that I have seen come through here.  And we've had a lot!!!
