1925 Gibson Granada Tenor Banjo $3250
Beautiful gold plated Granada from 1925. Gorgeous flamed maple.
Serial #8083-10. All original except missing a resonator screw. Plays and sounds great as a tenor. One small damaged spot on the binding of the resonator, that was repaired, but no a pro job. Back of the resonator may have been lightly oversprayed long ago, but you can feel and see the original checking in it, and it has that great old patina. It may have just been polished, or is the original finish, but I wanted to be upfront about it. Flange is slightly compressed at the tailpiece. Armrest is there, but needs repaired, but all parts are there. Original ball bearing tone ring, with “shotgun holes”. Unusual to have “Mastertone” on the headstock, and fingerboard, but appears to be original. Case has seen better days, and is coming apart. Great candidate for conversion. Add a neck and go, or convert to flathead. $3250 plus $99 shipping to US addresses. Please email for many more pics.
