Description

This may be your dream banjo.

This banjo started as a 2 piece flange TB4 and was converted to a 5 string with a One Piece Flange. Ronnie Bales took the original 3 ply hard rock maple shell and took a little bit off of the edge. This allowed him to install a one piece flange. The bottom of the shell has been refinished by Ronnie which means the only way you would know this was done is if you looked up the serial number. This produced a Pre War conversion banjo that has the one piece flange sound but for the price of a 2 piece flange!!

This has all new Prucha hardware including the flange. The neck is a Tim Davis neck and the tone ring is a First Quality tone ring. This has the original 1928 Resonator. The resonator is mahogany. All of the hardware is nickel. The neck is also mahogany with a rosewood fretboard. The fretboard has a Hearts and Flowers inlay pattern which looks great. The headstock also has inlay including the word Gibson. This has a one piece armrest and a Presto Tailpiece. The neck and resonator each have white binding on each side.

This is a great opportunity to get a $10,000 sound for a whole lot less!!! This also includes a Greg Rich era Gibson hardshell case.

Condition

This is absolutely in really good shape, especially for a Pre War Banjo. The resonator has the original finish. There is some light button scratching on the resonator and some light nicks and dings. However the resonator is still considered to be in good shape. All of the hardware is basically new so it also is clean and in good shape. The neck is straight and clean with a clean fretboard. The frets are clean with just minor wear on the first few frets. There is no buzzing at all and the wear that is there is minor. There are spikes at frets 7-10. The case is in good shape with limited wear.

Set Up

This has been professionally set up here at the Banjo Warehouse. This has a clean Remo frosted head which has been set to 90 on a drum dial. The bridge is a Davis Bridge with an ebony cap. This is set up with comfortable action which is adjustable and this also has correct intonation. I donít think this banjo will be here long because the amount of playing value this has is extraordinary for the price. This is a great looking special banjo that plays and sounds fantastic!!
