Photo for Ad 114095

1933 TB-1 Conversion 5 string.....This banjo was put together about 15 years ago by Dick Powell.....Has a 20 hole Curtis McPeake tonering....Five Star tuners.....Presto tailpiece(I have the original in the case)....First Quality flange....Remo Head....Snuffy Smith bridge....Neck was made by Wyatt Fawley(beautiful, comfortable).....thick rim(5/8")....Original resonator(maple), beautiful shape....Original Gibson armrest.....In a super nice gray fiberglass case(Guardian, I think)..It does not have fretwear...My strap is not included.......I have had several pro banjo players play this banjo, and they all love it(even borrow it)....I played it for years, but, I had several strokes a couple of years ago, and I mostly play guitar now instead of mandolin and banjo.......You couldn't buy a better bluegrass banjo for less than 10K......I really need the money, but I will consider high-end acoustic guitars......I am asking for $5750 obo and I will pay shipping and insurance....I have lots of pictures....Thanks for looking....Donnie......SEND OFFERS PLEASE
