Gibson TB-5 De Luxe Tenor Banjo (1925)

Photo for Ad 114198

Gibson TB-5 De Luxe Model Tenor Banjo (1925), made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, serial # 8105-1, shaded maple finish, laminated maple rim and resonator, mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, black hard shell case.

This is a very rare banjo, a remarkably lovely Gibson creation and a true 1920's period piece. The newly re-designed Mastertone TB-5 was the top-of-the-line banjo for Gibson in early 1925, and one of the first pieces in the then-newly redesigned resonator-and-flange banjo line. This early example was built not long after the new line was announced, most likely in the middle of 1925. It is one of the first generation of the seminal Mastertones and carries specific early features including the individually lettered word "MASTERTONE" on the headstock face instead of typical fingerboard block. As might be expected, this is a very fancy instrument. All hardware except the internal tone ring components is gold-plated and engraved, in a very delicate pattern. The fingerboard is bound in green pearl celluloid and has colored wood underlay on the sides; the same pattern is used on both edges of the resonator. The fingerboard and headstock face have delicate wreath pattern pearl inlay, while the back of the headstock has colored wood inlay in a decorative floral pattern. The resonator also has two circles of colored wood marquetry inlaid on the back. The tuners are gold-plated Planets with pearl buttons, the tailpiece is a special Kersher Unique engraved "DeLuxe", a designation briefly applied to this model in the Gibson line.

The tone ring itself is the older Lloyd Loar designed ball-bearing arch-top Mastertone style, already in use for a couple of years by this point. While not favored by modern Bluegrass players, it does have an interesting if slightly darker and more mysterious tone than the later fittings that replaced it after 1927. The scale length of this banjo is shorter than standard as well at 20 3/4", which was a Gibson catalog option aimed at their mandolin-playing clientele. By 1925 most professional tenor banjos had adopted the long 23" scale pioneered by Paramount; while in many ways Gibson's new Mastertones took inspiration (to put it politely) from that brand, the optional short scale on this banjo is a continuation of earlier Gibsonite policy. The short scale makes it easier to play single-line melodies, but does not offer the same 'snap' as the longer neck's increased tension, which was what orchestra banjoists were looking for by the mid-20's.

This TB-5 is essentially a transitional instrument, built while Gibson was desperately trying to adapt to the huge banjo market of the mid-20's. With the mandolin rapidly losing popularity and the guitar not yet ascendant, Gibson had to re-think their mando-centric strategy or face extinction. Their earlier mandolin-like "trapdoor" banjos were not very successful in dance orchestras, and this new-pattern Mastertone line was a make-or-break effort. This TB-5 represents the top of that first line, at $250.00 as expensive as the F-5 Master Model mandolin. While obviously not as sought-after (or expensive) today, the TB-5 is a wonderful piece of Gibson history and a lovely example of the company's artistry at arguable their greatest period.

Overall length is 32 1/4 in. (81.9 cm.), 11 in. (27.9 cm.) diameter head. Scale length is 20 3/4 in. (527 mm.). Width of nut is 1 1/4 in. (32 mm.). While we rarely offer instruments of this caliber in unrestored condition, this banjo is a fairly unique piece with different options that would appeal to different styles of player. As much of the interest in the early Gibson Mastertone tenor banjos today lies in their adaptability to 5-string format, we have elected to leave this piece as found rather than complete a set up in its original tenor form. That said, it would make a fantastic Irish tenor, as the shorter neck is perfect for the style. We would be happy to set it up in that format, or as a standard tuned tenor if requested. The banjo is currently missing 11 of the original gold-plated hooks, tailpiece nut and two of the resonator bolts, but all the remaining parts are original. There is wear overall to the gold plating, most notably on the armrest, and a decent amount of finish wear to the back of the resonator. The head is a solid old period Rodgers Daisy Brand, which is fairly dirty and most users would likely elect to replace, though we'd guess it still has an excellent period sound to offer. The neck is solid with no repairs; the finish is rubbed off the back around the first position and the frets show some moderate wear. Overall, the rim would ready to set up for conversion with the replacement tone ring, neck and head of choice, or the banjo could be set up as a tenor with minimal intrusion depending on the hook and head options requested. Overall a lovely old instrument, a remarkable example of Gibson's finest (and some would say least tacky) banjo work of the 1920's. Includes s later (probably 1940's) full-scale tenor HSC in very good condition. Unrestored. Overall Excellent Historic Condition.

Recent Gold Tone Ot-800 5-Str Banjo

Photo for Ad 114168

Exceptional condition. SN: 21505085.
Maple neck and pot. 3/8" wooden rim.

This is a good banjo for oldtime playing or 3-finger style. The banjo has enough mass and concentrated tone to push notes out away from it, but done in a pleasing manner. Maple rim is multiple bound at the bottom, inside and outside of rim. Tubaphone style tonering. Interesting inlays in fingerboard. Last several frets are scalloped away at end of fingerboard. Chrome hardware, including bracket band for the shoes, no-knot tailpiece, 2-band tuners, two co-rods, and old-time style armrest.
This banjo sounds very good, especially for the price… Comes with OHC.

Vega Regent 5 String Banjo (1925)

Photo for Ad 114150

Vega Regent Model 5 String Banjo (1925), made in Boston, Mass., serial # 66404, natural varnish finish, laminated maple rim and neck, ebony fingerboard, black hard shell case.

The Vega Regent is one of the classic 5-string banjos of the Vega line, not a fancy top-line model but still built with the typical extremely high quality components and a simple but attractive design. The rim similar to the Little Wonder, made of laminated maple with tortoise celluloid binding around the bottom edge. It is fitted with basic nickel-plated hardware (open-end nuts and a heavy hoop) and the simple 1-stage sheathed tone ring. The neck is laminated maple with a bound ebony fingerboard featuring pearl dots with a single star inlay at the 5th fret. The headstock is the classic Vega shape with no adornment, just a plain dark wood cap. This is an original 5-string instrument with matching numbers neck and rim and all dowel stamps correct and intact from a period when Vega was primarily turning to building 4-string jazz age banjos. In addition, this banjo features the largest diameter rim offered on this model, an especially desirable feature for an old-time instrument and increasingly rarely seen as late as 1925. This is a very good player's example of one of America's great workingman's banjos; not flashy in any way but a solid performer then and now.

Overall length is 37 1/2 in. (95.2 cm.), 11 13/16 in. (30 cm.) diameter head, and 2 5/8 in. (6.7 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 28 in. (711 mm.). Width of nut is 1 1/4 in. (32 mm.). Overall a nice example with some typical playwear, in fine gigging condition. There is general finish and plating wear overall, the most noticeable loss to the varnish is wear spots to the back of the neck in the first couple of positions and around the back edge of the rim. All but two of the hook/nut sets are original; the tailpiece is an original 1910's Elite style that may well be older than the banjo. The tuners are original 1920's Planets; Most of the Regents we have seen from this period were still equipped with non-geared tuners so these may have been a factory upgrade, or fitted to the banjo soon after purchase. The fifth string peg is a newer geared unit, but fitted with a nicely matched Ivoroid button. The original frets and fingerboard show very little wear. This large-rim Regent is fitted with a calfskin head and has a wonderful sound: loud, round and powerful with plenty of punch but less of the bright overtones typically heard with a more elaborate tone ring like the Tu-Ba-Phone. One of the nicer old-time banjos we have had recently, a great original 1920's 5-string solo or stringband instrument at a reasonable price (not much above a quality modern copy) including a new "bump" style HSC. Excellent - Condition.

1927 Gibson Mastertone TB-3 Conversion Banjo

Photo for Ad 114094

1927 Gibson Mastertone TB-3 conversion banjo, in Very Good to Excellent Condition, ebony fingerboard with Hearts & Flowers inlay, maple neck, two piece flange, Hopkins conversion flat head tone ring and/or the arch top no hole tone ring that came in it. Factory Order no. is 0146-48.

The rim and label have not been cut, so you would have the options of cutting the rim for a regular flat head tone ring, continuing with the conversion tone ring or using the arch top tone ring that came in it. There is an excellent heavy duty case with it. I have a Market Value Appraisal from Morgan Music, Lebanon, MO for $5,000.00 which was with a lower valued case and before the Hopkins conversion tone ring. The price is $4,275.00 (strap not included) with Free Shipping by UPS Ground. I will reduce the price if you only want one tone ring or neither tone ring.

Please send e-mail for additional photos.

I have available a circa 1925 Gibson TB-2 (wavy flange) tenor banjo with original hardshell case. This is a short scale banjo with a 21" scale length and 10.5" diameter pot. I recently gave it a good going-over...I set it up to trad. Irish tuning (GDAE) and it plays effortlessly with a straight neck. It has two expertly repaired rim cracks, otherwise it's in fine original condition and needs nothing. It's ready to go!

Old Style Clawhammer Banjo. $975 CDn + Shipping

Photo for Ad 114069

A mix of old and new. 100 year old 10 5/8" 28 bracket spunover rim, fresh skin head and custom made tiger maple neck with a rosewood fretboard. Scale is 25 5/8" and 1 5/16" nut. The pot weighs approx 5.5 lbs itself so more than double the weight of most spunover pots. Needless to say, this is not a lightweight openback banjo. I have two with the same pot assembly and I love the sound of both. I am keeping the other. Canadian shipping only on this one.. $975 Cdn + shipping within Canada. Return accepted if the banjo does not meet your expectations. Thanks.. Bill

Tenor Instrument - Gibson + Rickenbacker - Electric

Photo for Ad 114044

Here's a one-of-a-kind instrument. I call it a Gibsonbacker. It's a Gibson tenor banjo neck (highly figured curly maple) on a handmade guitar-like body. And it's electrified with an original Rickenbacker horse shoe magnet pickup. I have it tuned like a mandolin and it's fun to play. Electronics work fine. Could use some setup to lower action. Comes with a handmade hardshell case that needs new leather hinges and latch. $375 + shipping Pictures available if interested. Thanks for looking!

C. 1928 Gibson 40-Hole Conversion 5-String Banjo

Photo for Ad 113948

This banjo features very cool original 40-hole archtop pot with 1930’s Gibson 5-String Kalamazoo neck, converted to Gibson appointments.

Exc condition.

Serial number: 9260-22.

This is a real jewel of a banjo. What we have noticed is it’s great to have an old Gibson tenor with a new neck by a noted maker, but it’s much better to have a 1930’s 5-string neck that has aged a similar number of years as the pot itself.

The neck: This neck started out being a Gibson Kalamazoo brand 5-string neck: mahogany with dot inlay and Kalamazoo peghead design. The peghead was reshaped into a Gibson “Fiddle Cut” shape. Pearl Gibson logo and Hearts and Flowers pattern was inlaid into peghead overlay. Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard had the original dots removed and filled with rosewood, then pearl Hearts and Flowers pattern was inlaid in fingerboard with Mastertone block at 21st fret. Side of fingerboard and heelcap have antiqu’ed multiple bindings similar to a 1920’s mahogany Style 4 banjo. Main tuners are two Keith D-Tuners at 2nd and 3rd and original Grover Patent Pancake tuners at 1st and 4th. Schaller 5th.

More information and photos coming soon.

Johannes Bonefaas Banjo For Sale

No image has been uploaded

Owner: Upload photo

Number 008. Short Scale. 11" Richie Stearns model. Slightly wider fretboard.
Synthetic head. I was told by Johannes that of the batch of banjos which included this one and 2 others, Richie liked the sound of this one the best. I was thinking of changing to a goatskin head and Ritchie said "I wouldn't mess with it".
So this is a good one.
You can't find a more solid open back banjo. Distinct, rich sound.
They are homemade, with the exception of the tuners. All hardware, tone ring, brackets, all made by hand.
Quite a statement for this modern mechanized world. These instruments are heirloom. I have my new one, waited a year for it, and I am having a hard time parting with this one.
There is a TKL hard case in great shape.
Can send photos if you want.
$ 3000
TKL Hard Case in great shape
Buyer Pays FedEx Shipping.
