1927 Gibson Mastertone TB-3 Conversion Banjo
1927 Gibson Mastertone TB-3 conversion banjo, in Very Good to Excellent Condition, ebony fingerboard with Hearts & Flowers inlay, maple neck, two piece flange, Hopkins conversion flat head tone ring and/or the arch top no hole tone ring that came in it. Factory Order no. is 0146-48.
The rim and label have not been cut, so you would have the options of cutting the rim for a regular flat head tone ring, continuing with the conversion tone ring or using the arch top tone ring that came in it. There is an excellent heavy duty case with it. I have a Market Value Appraisal from Morgan Music, Lebanon, MO for $5,000.00 which was with a lower valued case and before the Hopkins conversion tone ring. The price is $4,275.00 (strap not included) with Free Shipping by UPS Ground. I will reduce the price if you only want one tone ring or neither tone ring.
