Photo for Ad 116600

Put a huge 14" pot on a banjo and add massive nylon strings and, "cell-o", you have the CEB-5 cello banjo. Originally used in turn of the century banjo orchestras, this unique banjo just has to be played to be believed! Rolled brass tone ring, Maple rim and neck, "hot dog' arm rest, comes with a hardshell case.

1963 Gibson Bowtie RB 250; '58 Flathead Ring And Extra Neck

Photo for Ad 116576

Selling this awesome 1963 Bow tie.
It's an absolute monster of a banjo, has that Ron stewart bite to it for sure.

Has a 1958 Gibson tone ring in it, that came from Richie Dotson out of another bow tie. '58 was the first year they started making tone rings again after the war.

I have the original neck that has a repaired headstock crack, and also an aftermarket neck build by luthier Tim Davis. Tim also repaired the cracked original headstock, and honestly I don't even know where it was cracked at. He's one of the best luthiers and repairmen I've ever known.

It does have the original case with it.

Asking $3,400 OBO for the entire banjo, with case and extra neck... this is an excellent banjo for that price.
Reason for sale is I do not play it enough, and I'd love for someone to be playing it more. I also found a mandolin I really want and need to sell this to get into it.

Would also be interested in trades, looking to downgrade some.... contact me with your offers. I'd love to tell you more about this awesome five.

Please call anytime.

Reduced; Weber Diamondback Distressed- $3,250

2004 Prucha Legend Cherry

Photo for Ad 116565

$3,750.00

#0527

Exc. Condition. This banjo shows slightest amount of use, with minor discoloration on armrest. Almost no wear to the frets or head.

Figured Cherry wood neck and resonator. Resonator is 2-piece, book-matched quilted Cherry that is very dramatic. The neck has similar figure, but is more subtle. Fiddle peghead with JPrucha logo at the top and “Hearts & Flowers” inlay in the Ebony peghead overly. Solid pearl truss rod cover. Appears to be Brazilian Rosewood, radiused fingerboard with pearl “Hearts & Flowers” inlay with Legend inlaid in pearl block at 22nd fret. Bone nut. Reversed multi-ply bindings with black/white/black along fingerboard and top and back of resonator, with white line seen from the top, the bottom and the sides. Ebony heelcap. Prewar style 3-ply Maple rim, with 20-hole flathead tonering. Wonderful tuners with matching Ivoroid buttons. Railroad spikes installed at A, B-flat, B and C.

This is a great sounding banjo, the tone is similar to maple but with more mid-range and more of a sculpted attack. Comes in Travelite case.

Nechville Short Scale Meteor

Photo for Ad 116543


This is a lightly used Meteor electric banjo, with cocobolo top, and a 22 inch scale. I have it currently tuned to double D but have used it with no problems for G and double C. It has a radiused fret-board. I had this made with the short scale because at the time I thought I would have problems with a normal scale, but since then I have realized that anything from 25.5 or shorter is fine. This is a fine sounding banjo, with a decent acoustic sound for practicing without disturbing the family and can rock out when plugged in. It is in excellent condition, like new, except for some minor rippling of the black finish on the metal frame, a small area near the neck that I did not even notice for several weeks.

I am selling because I have too many banjos, and play my wood top Meteor much more often.

$2200 includes shipping in the continental USA

Photo for Ad 116542

This is a Nechville Moonshine with a copper colored frame, radiused fretboard, tunneled fifth-string, 25.5 inch scale, archtop tone ring, a hardshell case, and has been used very lightly. It is a great sounding banjo, well balanced, and sits well on my thigh, easy to play. I am selling it because I have too many banjo's and I play my Nechville solid top Meteor most of the time.

$2600 plus $75 shipping in the continenetal USA

This Gibson RB-250 gives us everything you would expect out of a vintage Gibson resonator banjo. Tonally the banjo is loud, bright, and stands out in a jam. Visually the banjo has a few charming scratches, small dents, dings, and a bit of noticeable finish wear on the neck. However, the hardware and tuners are all the original Gibson branded parts. The banjo plays easy as can be and the 5th string railroad spikes work fantastically (although one is upside down from the rest of them). To complete the package the original 1970s Gibson Hardshell Case is included.

Bacon Orchestra Special Style B Plectrum Banjo (1925)

Photo for Ad 116429

Bacon Orchestra Special Style B Model Plectrum Banjo (1925), made in Groton CT, serial # 16522, shaded maple finish, period black hard shell case.

Here's something we don't often see-a very nice midline Plectrum banjo from one of the best 1920's makers. While Tenor banjos at this level are quite common, it is only rarely we encounter the long-neck 4 string variety. This Bacon Style B is a solid instrument, designed for amateur players or pros on a budget but with many of the same construction details as the celebrated B&D Silver Bell. The materians and general construction are the same but with a simpler tone ring, flange and level of decoration. The heavy maple rim mounts a simple sheathed tone ring, and the resonator a plainer round-hole flange. The neck has a bound dyed-maple fingerboard with pearl inlay in the Silver Bell 3 1 pattern. The headstock is plain with just a "Bacon' script inlay and mounts geared Grover tuners. This is an excellent value in a vintage plectrum, a fine player and fully capable of holding its own with many more expensive banjos of the period.

Overall length is 37 in. (94 cm.), 11 in. (27.9 cm.) diameter head, and 3 5/8 in. (9.2 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 26 in. (660 mm.). Width of nut is 1 1/8 in. (29 mm.). This banjo is in nice original condition overall, set up with a modern head but otherwise original. The original four resonator mounting bolts are missing (replaced by screws) and the tailpiece has lost its top cover, otherwise the banjo is original and complete, with some light typical play and plating wear. It would be hard to find a better vintage beginner's or intermediate-level Plectrum banjo, with the full Bacon sound and quality of build at a mid-line price. Includes a worn but functional period HSC. Excellent - Condition.

​"In 1980, five musicians went into the Arch Street Studio in Berkeley, CA and Bluegrass recording history was made. "The Bluegrass Album" with Tony Rice, J.D. Crowe, Bobby Hicks, Doyle Lawson and Todd Philips redefined the direction of the music for the next generation.

The banjo pictured on the cover and recorded on the Bluegrass Album was a prewar RB-3 that has been with Saga for more than 30 years. For the past five years, we have charted a course which has finally resulted in the recreation of that banjo legend...a banjo that produced some of the finest examples of banjo tone that have ever been recorded."

Gorgeous Early Fairbanks Vega Tubaphone #3 $3600

Photo for Ad 116362

Here's an absolutely gorgeous Vega Fairbanks Tubaphone #3 original five string banjo from 1914. It has the normal 10 15/16" head diameter and has had virtually nothing changed over its 100 year plus lifetime. The buyer could choose to have it shipped in its original end opening leather case (which is not a good choice for protection, and needs some repair) or in a regular hard case. Naturally, the serial numbers match between the shell and the neck. The original frets show minimal wear on the first four or so, and no wear at all further up the neck. The nickel plating remains shiny, and there's no visible corrosion on the hooks. There's a good quality older calfskin head mounted, though I have no idea if it's also the original, of course. I've seldom seen a high quality banjo of this age in condition quite this nice. It retains its original patent pegs, being too early for there to be geared ones. These would work great if you used NylGut strings, which I love on these banjos. The ungeared tuners are less practical with metal strings. It also has its original fancy version of the No Knot tailpiece, with the levers that flip up to lock gut or nylon strings in place. I truly cannot imagine a nicer example of this model. If you live near the San Francisco bay area and wish to try it out, that can be done. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have. $3,600 plus shipping cost takes it home.

Murphy Method Beginning Banjo Camp - October 27-29, 2017

Photo for Ad 116354

Join us for our seventh annual Murphy Method Beginning Banjo Camp, October 27-29, 2017, in Winchester, Virginia. A weekend of all banjo all the time is just what you need to kick your playing up to the next level! Our camp is different from any other camp you’ve gone to. It will be 100% Murphy Method instruction. We’ll do more playing, less talking, and the small class size will allow plenty of individual attention.

Murphy Henry and Casey Henry will be your instructors for this intimate camp. Our beginning camp focuses on playing with others. When you come prepared, knowing our three pre-requisite songs (see below), we can work on playing the breaks in a jam session setting, vamping to these tunes, hearing chord changes, and some basic improvising. Evenings feature instructor concerts and slow jams to practice what you’ve learned during the day.

We are extremely lucky to have banjo builder Geoff Stelling appearing Saturday to present his banjo setup workshop. Valuable information on how to keep your banjo in tip-top playing condition. Every player should know a bit about setup.

Newly added: Novice Class. Chris Henry will teach the novices. He can get you started from the very beginning. We even have banjos to lend. Please indicate on your registration form if you need to borrow a banjo for camp.

Gibson TB-7 1940

Photo for Ad 116329

A rare example of a 1940 TB-7. The TB-7 was a result of Gibson's decision to revamp their banjo line in 1937. The 7 style was one of three new "top tension" styles, which featured a new head-tightening design and came standard with a flathead tone ring.

This particular example is in fine condition with minimal playing wear and comes with the original mute and redline case.

Specs

Scale - 22 3/4"
Pot Size - 11"

Stromberg-Voisenet Tenor Banjo With Mucha-Inspired Artwork

Photo for Ad 116311

How about a 20's tenor banjo that's had some adventures along the way. 19 frets, original geared tuners, marquetry inlay on the pot and resonator. Somewhere along the line it acquired a heavy steel top-tension hoop, an inscription on the inside of the resonator detailing its last three owners, and more recently, an elaborate head illustration based on Alphonse Mucha's "Ivy." Guaranteed to be the only one like it at the session. With a tough-loved hard case, $400 plus shipping.
