Vintage Christy Longneck Banjo - $600 OBO

Photo for Ad 133460

Vintage Christy longneck 5-string openback banjo

As I understand it, these were made in Colorado in the 60s-70s era. I found some links to more info about these that I'll be posting below.

Although my knowledge on this type of banjo is somewhat limited, I'll do the best I can to make it sound and play good for the new owner.

I noticed the tuners and armrest are vintage Elton parts. Some of the other hardware seems very similar to what ODE was using back in the day. The banjo looks to be all original, including the friction 5th string peg.

My asking price is negotiable. Nothing is set in stone here.

It will come in the original faux alligator chipboard case, which is in remarkably good condition.
