A. C. Fairbanks Electric

Photo for Ad 110405

The Electric was Fairbanks flagship model the the scalloped metal tonering that was introduced in 1890. The addition of the ring to the rim gave the banjo it's "electrifying" sound.... this eventually evolved into the fabled "Whyte Laydie" model; #75 stamp present on dowel stick and rim interior. 11-1/2" rim with original hardware; cherry neck has a 25-1/2" scale length, pearl inlay present; reproduction bone friction pegs.

1964 Gibson RB-100 5 String Banjo/ N. Mint

Photo for Ad 110318

Hello, I am offering for sale a 1964 Gibson RB-100 banjo that is 100% original and appears nearly unplayed other than just a small amount of very light hand smudging on the head. I do not find one scratch, chip, or ding on this instrument. The rim is 7/16" thick with the round brass hoop tone ring. It is loud. Were it not for some normal aged laquer crazing, it would appear completely new. The original hard case is the same way. 6 digit 257,??? serial number stamped on back of the peghead.
There honestly isn't much to describe on this banjo if you are familiar with this model, it is exactly that. But if there is anything specific or that I have left out, do not hesitate to ask and I will answer to the best of my ability. I have several pictures and will be glad to forward them to anyone seriously interested. $1,500.00 OBO. Lord bless

Walnut Enoch Tradesman 12" Pot Fretted Openback Banjo. $950

Photo for Ad 110111

Hey y'all posted this a while back and sort of forgot about it so sorry if I did not respond. Anyway gonna give it another shot here. I am selling my I think 2015 walnut openback Tradesman. All is perfect as far as neck, frets, and setup it sounds and plays very well. There are no wear marks or even dings on her. It is fully fretted up to flailing scoop and has the fully adjustable truss rod, kind of a pain to get to but doable. 12" pot. Don't know what else to say about it. Thanks and have a good one. I am only selling because a friend is building me a custom one and I kind of want to keep the case so that is reflected in the price.

1920's Bacon Banjo With "Bacophone"

Photo for Ad 110054

Great old banjo in amazing condition. Only a few minimal scratches on the neck behind the nut, and the Bacophone tone ring has some non-structural cracks in the veneer. Overall, a unique instrument that is still very playable.

1980 Ode 6500 D

Photo for Ad 109954

The Few, the Proud, the Ode.

The Ode is a banjo that speaks for itself and how. It has the sound that everyone aspires to replicate.

Gold on walnut. Engraved armrest and tailpiece. Heavy one-piece flange and long 5th string capo. Plays like butter with a beautifully sculpted, smooth slender neck. Delicate mother of pearl fretboard inlays enhance the beauty of this handsome banjo. Very good to excellent condition, with only slight tarnish on the armrest. No buckle rash, scratches or finish checking save for one small area on the side of the resonator most likely due to strap rubbing.

Professionally set up for speed with light strings and low action. Comes with matching gold Keith tuners installed (a $275 value), original gold tuners and all original hardware to include truss rod wrench. New Renaissance head and New Generation Snuffy Smith 5/8 compensated bridge. Original case in good condition.

Questions welcome and lots of photos available.

$3,450 plus shipping and insurance ($150 CONUS) via cashier's check or USPS money order is all it takes to make this well preserved piece of history land on your front doorstep in mere days. 48-hour approval try-out period with money back guarantee if returned in the exact same condition at your own shipping and insurance expenses, but I know you'll want to keep this banjo. And did I mention, a contribution of course to the Cafe.

You won't find another one like this anytime soon so make it happen. Carpe Diem.

Ome's Flagship, the Juggernaut III.

Top of the line, best of the best, just doesn't get any better or prettier.

As for sound, it's a SMOKER! And, think Eric Weismann playing the theme song Dueling Banjos on his Juggernaut.

24K gold plated and heavily engraved hardware, untarnished and in pristine condition, exquisite abalone purfling on the deep golden maple resonator and neck. As if that wasn't enough, the resonator, heel and peghead are extensively carved. Absolutely impeccable quality and craftsmanship.

This Sleeping Beauy has no dings or scratches and very minimal finish checking, especially for a 42 year old banjo. Grandpa definitely put this baby under the bed and forgot about it for the next 4 decades but he should have put a potato or a couple of carrots in the case also. Since he didn't, there are a few minor surface cracks on the resonator which are esthetic only.

Please email me for more close up photos and make sure you're sitting down when you look at them.

Comes with the original case, still in quite good shape, or a Guardian knock-off hardshell.

$5,750 via cashier's check or USPS money order plus $150 shipping & insurance in CONUS will make this 'they don't make 'em like this anymore' Gem land on your doorstep in a few days. Add $150 for hardshell case. 48-hour approval try-out period with money back guarantee if returned in exact same condition at your shipping and insurance expenses. And did I mention, a contribution of course to the Cafe.

Life's too short not to go for the Gold when it's within your grasp and this banjo's loaded with it. Carpe Diem.

Left Handed 2004 Gibson RB-3W Banjo, 100% Original With OHSC

Photo for Ad 109917

This is a factory Left Handed Gibson RB-3W Banjo, manufactured 12/17/2004. It is a one-owner banjo, having only been played briefly and then spent the rest of its life in the case. The only thing keeping it from being mint is the Nickel hardware has some tarnishing, but there are no dings to the body or back, and no fretwear. This is a really clean Banjo -" left handed high-end Gibson banjos are SO hard to find!

Description:

2004 Gibson RB-3 5 string flathead banjo ALL ORIGINAL with the original Gibson hardshell case. This has a mahogany resonator, mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard, stock Gibson tone ring with nickel parts, 1 piece armrest with a presto tailpiece and stock Gibson tuning keys. Leaves and bows inlays up the fretboard only help to complete the package and make this a beautiful American-Made, top of the line Gibson Banjo.

This banjo was purchased at the “Gibson Showcase” store in the Opry Mills Mall in Nashville. It includes everything that came with the Banjo when new: Gibson leather strap, set-up instruction sheet, wrench, warranty card, and OHSC.

I don’t see any Left Handed Gibson Banjos for sale on the major sites; these are very hard to find instruments!

More pics available on request.

$4500

1925 Weymann Banjo Guitar $2,500

Photo for Ad 109856

Weymann Orchestra Style 2 Model Guitar Banjo (1925), made in Philadelphia, PA. An extremely rare instrument; Weymann's 1920's banjos are fairly well known in tenor form, but 6-string guitar variants hardly ever surface. The Style 2 Orchestra model Guitar-Banjo was a catalog item briefly in the mid-1920's when the Megaphonic line was line was introduced but was only made in very small quantities. Generally Style 2 was only the second model up in Weymann's Megaphonic professional line, but is absolutely a top quality fancy banjo. It features the company's patented "megaphonic" rim with the hooks running through it, the most elegant of all 1920's banjo designs. Like all Weymann banjos, this is extremely finely-made with the company's customary attention to detail evident everywhere.

The neck is chunky but comfortable with a medium "V" profile, built of flame maple with multiple colored wood laminates through the center, at the heelcap and under the fingerboard. The ebony fretboard is inlaid with fancy shaped pearl and multi-bound in grained ivoroid. The large 6-string size (but banjo-style) headstock carries a diagonal "Weymann" logo of inlaid individual pearl letters surrounded by an elaborate floral design, with multiple wood underlays on the front and back. The resonator is nicely figured maple with binding on both edges, the rim top is capped in rosewood with an inlaid half-herringbone strip. There is an attractive solid rosewood armrest mounted to the hoop, a unique Weymann feature. The unique Weymann adjustable tailpiece has an engraved slide-off cover. This is a beautifully crafted, great sounding and extremely classy guitar banjo, one of the most striking of its type.

Overall length is 36 1/2 in. (92.7 cm.), 11 in. (27.9 cm.) diameter head, and 3 1/4 in. (8.3 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 24 1/2 in. (622 mm.). Width of nut is 1 7/8 in. (48 mm.). A beautiful original piece; no modifications or repairs. There is some finish wear overall but all original finish and parts except one of two screws securing the heck brace internally and probably later (but not recent) bridge. Plays and sounds excellent, complete with the vintage (5-string length) OHSC is a wreck but available if the new owner wants it.

Loar Lm 520 Vs Mandolin

Murphy Method Women's Banjo Camp: July 28-30, 2017

Photo for Ad 109384

Level: Beginning and Intermediate
Tuition: $700 (Includes lodging Friday and Saturday nights and breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday)

Join us for our fifth Murphy Method Women’s Banjo Camp, July 28-30, 2017, in Winchester, Virginia. Why an all-women banjo camp? Because we want to do a women’s camp. We want to reach out to more women who play and get them playing together. Very few women come to our other camps and we want to create a unique event with an inclusive atmosphere where everyone will feel comfortable.

Our first four Women's Banjo Camps were a rousing success! Everyone left in a state of euphoria, including the instructors: Murphy and Casey Henry. The after-hours jamming lasted till midnight and was a source of many hilarious stories the next day. The harmony singing workshop was a huge hit and was praised by all. We will be offering that again this year. The vibe during the entire weekend was electric, with women, from ages 12 to 75, bonding, sharing, supporting, laughing, and--best of all--playing and singing their hearts out!

We will take a maximum of 22 students. Murphy and Casey will focus on making you a better, more well-rounded banjo player. There will be lots and lots of playing. And while we have said this is a camp for all levels of banjo playing women, we do have some minimum pre-requisites.

This unique invention was created by the phenomenal banjoist, Mr. Alfred A. Farland as a solution for his distaste for metal tone rings. The design was patented around 1890. It is an 11.5 inch head ( w/ high crown-1/2 in.) created by crimping a thin sheet of steel to a flesh hoop, and painted white.

The inside label reads:

"FARLAND'S PATENT BANJO HEAD, perfected by Mr. Alfred A. Farland Phenomenal Banjoist. Positively not affected by moisture. Practically non-stretching. Gives the banjo a louder, more sustaining tone than calfskin or any kind of vellum and the tone is always the same, rain or shine. PATENTS PENDING IN ALL ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRIES" - Followed by directions and a 5 year guarantee.

A very interesting and rare banjo item, has light denting and a fair amount of chipped paint, however the patina would look right on any older banjo.

$99.00 OBO
