1932 Gibson Mahogany TB-4 Conversion Banjo

Photo for Ad 139341


Rare Mahogany style 4 banjo from 1932.
Conversion 5-string neck by Greg Boyd.

Exc(-) condition. SN: 9960-18.

Gibson style-4 banjos were almost always Mahogany from around 1925 into about 1930. After that we usually only see style 4 banjos made with Walnut. They almost always have white/black/white bindings and either Hearts & Flowers inlay or Flying Eagle. This particular banjo is rare having Mahogany in 1932. It also has the usual wh/blk/wh bindings and concentric circles in back of resonator.

The replacement Mahogany neck was made by Greg Boyd. It has fiddle peghead with Flying eagle inlay. Ebony flat fingerboard. All original nickel hardware except newer Presto tailpiece. Even the original Grover pancake offset tuners are in use in the new neck. 5th string tuner is a Waverly 5-star.

Frets are in good shape with only light signs of use. Lots of power and drive in this banjo!

Comes with HC.

MP3 sound clips available on our web site.
