1930's Pre War Gibson Banjo TB11 5 string conversion Banjo

This is a gorgeous Pre War Gibson Banjo style TB11 that has been converted to a 5 string.  This has been inspected and set up at the Banjo Warehouse in Atlanta Georgia.

ALL OF OUR SALES INCLUDE A 7 DAY FULL SATISFACTION GUARANTEE

Description

This is a pre war TB11 shell and resonator that has been assembled with top quality hardware.  All of the hardware is Prucha hardware which is the best hardware made today.  Even Steve Huber uses Prucha hardware.  The tone ring is a Huber HR30 tone ring and this was also assembled by Steve Huber.  The neck maker is unknown but this is definitely a professional quality neck.  The fretboard is rosewood and this has a very attractive Tulip inlay pattern.

Although it is true that all that is pre war is the shell and resonator those parts along with the HR30 tone ring create the Pre War tone.  This is the most inexpensive way to get authentic pre war sound and this is a great example of a TB11 conversion.  Prucha is absolutely the best hardware maker today and the HR30 tone ring is the best Pre War style ring ever made.  This has a lot of volume and plays and sounds fantastic.  The banjo comes with a vintage hardshell case.

Condition

This banjo is in gorgeous condition.  The resonator looks great in fact it almost looks new.  The hardware is new so it looks fantastic.  The neck and fretboard are in great shape with overall very clean frets.  There is a hint of wear on the first few frets but it isn't excessive.  There is no buzzing at all in the banjo.  The rest of the frets are perfect.  There are spikes at the 7th-9th frets.  This is absolutely gorgeous and almost looks new with a clean hardshell case.

Set Up

Typically we set up every banjo here but since Steve Huber assembled this he also set it up.  This has a new Huber frosted head which is set to 88 on a drum dial.  The bridge is a new Huber bridge and the banjo is set with correct intonation.  The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the action is set nicely.  This plays great and has wonderful tone and volume.

This is the best way to get into a Pre War sound at the lowest price and best value.  Check out Banjo Warehouse for all sorts of interesting New, Used and Vintage Banjos for Sale.  We also have rare parts and guitars.
