1930 Gibson TB3 Conversion 9550-30 - $10,000

Photo for Ad 131675

Here's a great prewar Gibson banjo with some pedigree. SN: 9550-30. Owned by David Carroll when he was touring with Darrell Webb. When I purchased it I was told it was once owned by Noam Pikelny. It’s in all original and top-notch condition. Replica Gibson neck by Frank Neat that was given a 10in radius and the finish was taken off the back (speed neck) by Tom Nechville in 2015. Plays like butter. Best feeling neck I’ve ever played. Sloan tonering. Amazing tone. Waverly tuners, but have the original ones that will come with it. Tailpiece cover was taken off but it is in the case as well. Comes with standard guardian case. Original neck not included.

This banjo was used extensively on both of my records (“Gregg Welty - Memoir” and “Gregg Welty - Community”) which you can hear at: https://greggwelty.com/music

Happy to provide more sound clips if interested!

Goldtone Ob-250 Orange Blossom 5-String Banjo

Photo for Ad 131668

Goldtone OB-250 Banjo is in excellent condition. (Includes hardshell case)
Price - $1000 (shipping is extra)

The Orange Blossom (OB) banjos harken back to Gold Tone's early days and their popularity hasn't diminished over the decades. These professional-grade banjos evoke the great pre-WW ll banjos played by the Masters: Earl Scruggs, Don Reno, J.D. Crow all depended on those great banjos from the Midwest USA to power their sound. The OB-250 has everything needed to produce THAT tone: a sand-cast bell brass flathead tone ring, a cast one-piece resonator flange circling a multi-ply maple rim with twin coordinator rods and an extra-deep curly maple multi-ply resonator for better low-end response. The curly maple neck has a bound ebony fretboard with hearts & flowers inlay. The bracket hooks even have metric threading to enable finer tension adjustment. The price includes a hard shell case.

1930s Gibson RB-00

Photo for Ad 131654

$3,995.00

Case: Newer hardshell

Description: With the exception of a modern Remo head and a Snuffy Smith bridge, this banjo has all the original parts it had when it left the Gibson factory 80 or so years ago. The back of the neck shows play wear, but the back of the resonator is in pristine condition. Whoever owned it played it but took exceptional care of it. This is a great sounding non-Mastertone model...even without a tone ring and sporting the 0.5" wood rim it can hold its own in most any jam. And this is another one that anyone looking to lighten the load would find a true joy to play.

Recording King RK-R85-Sn 5 String Banjo Sunburst TB-6 Style

For Sale: 1929 Gibson Mastertone TB3 5 String Conversion

Photo for Ad 131634

Purchased this Banjo from Gruhn guitars in 1989 as a TB-3. 5 string conversion neck was built by Marty Lanham in Nashville who came highly recommended by Gruhn Guitars. The neck is thinner depth wise than the standard Gibson dimension, so it plays more easily for me anyway. Does not come with the original neck as it was left behind in the past. Selling because I no longer play banjo.

Photos on regular.

Asking: $5200

Deering John Hartford Banjo For Sale

Photo for Ad 131604

For sale is my 2017 Deering John Hartford model banjo

The banjo is in an almost new excellent condition, with no scratches, dings fret wear (see photos) or metal discolouration. It has only been played in a smoke free home, and at a few gigs since I’ve owned it. It’s an amazing banjo with incredible tone especially with a wooden tone ring, but I’ve been offered a pre-war banjo which I need to raise funds for, so reluctantly its for sale. The website link is to the band I play with that has a video of me playing the banjo.
Listed below are more details:

Mat finish curly maple neck and resonator.
Grenadillo tone ring
Deering “smile” bridge
2017 model
22 fret model
Standard resonator
Railroad pegs at 7,8,9
Hardly any fret wear at all, see pics
Looked after very well, no marks or belt buckle rash
Comes with standard Deering hardshell case
Amazing volume and tone, especially for a banjo with a wooden tone ring

Follow this link for a Youtube video of the banjo https://youtu.be/GpeGH-uB9Ss

The banjo is in the uk, and I’m asking £2875 (Sterling)

Vega Tubaphone #9 Five String With Original Neck $3,400

Photo for Ad 131497

The A C Fairbanks Co. of Boston Massachusetts made the absolute finest banjos at the turn of the 20th century. Following a fire, the Vega Co. took over production of these banjos. What we have here is what had been the very top of the line for Vega, the Tubaphone #9, featuring gorgeous engraved inlays, flamed maple neck, a lovely carved heel, the original pearl buttoned tuning pegs and a Rogers calfskin head. This particular example is actually made of two different instruments, as the serial numbers on the shell and the neck dowel do not match. Both are original Vega, and mate perfectly. There is also a very well repaired heel crack in the neck. The metal parts show some dullness, which could of course be polished out if desired. The skin head is tight, but is pulled down about as far as it can go. The original fifth string nut has been replaced by a metal one. Most Tubaphones had head sizes of either 10 15/16" or 11 13/16". This example is in between, with an 11 1/2" shell. The sound is everything you'd expect, full and warm with lots or volume. The tailpiece is also unusual: a long Kershner Unique that also features the movable cams used on the fanciest of the earlier "No Knot" styles. I've priced this wonderful instrument at about half what they normally sell for, and will of course make a donation here should it sell. It's listed on Reverb for a bit more

Hoffee Case
Calton Case For 5-String Banjo

1967 Gibson RB-250

Photo for Ad 131370

$2,595.00

Case: Newer hardshell case

Description: This workhorse banjo of the Gibson line is still in great condition after 50 years. It has some very light scratches on the back of the resonator and some normal finish checking, but all the hardware still shines like a new penny. It retains its original tuners including the friction 5th string tuner. If the new owner wants to change that out for ease of playability, we will be happy to accommodate. It has the wider “Les Paul” type frets which still have plenty of life left in them. And before you ask, yes, it has the thinner rim. But that certainly doesn’t affect its tone in a negative way… this banjo has all the pop and growl you could ever want. Comes with a newer hard shell case.

MORE TWANG FOR YOUR BUCK! ONLY $ 500 Shipped !!

Get your hands on one of Gold Tone's factory blemished instruments for less!

Pick one up today!

New for 2016, the Gold Tone BG-150F brings the beautiful appearance of the great pre-WW ll banjos to a new, lower price point. This banjo offers the player the lovely hearts-and-flowers fretboard inlay and the fully-bound neck and fourteen-inch resonator of the Gold Tone BG-250F combined with lightweight playing comfort (made possible by installing a quarter-inch brass-rod tone ring rather than the nearly three-pound bell brass ring in the BG-250F). Little is lost in sound quality or power, and long gigs played standing up become much more bearable. Available as left-handed model.

The Gold Tone openback Banjolele was our first banjo-uke. We designed it for ukulele players that want more of that sweet uke tone blended with the pop and snap of the banjo. The Banjolele Deluxe is a replica of one of the most famous banjo ukes ever made. The one-piece flange and deep-wall resonator pump the sound forward toward your audience and the arch-top tone ring is perfect for executing the banjo-uke techniques made famous by the legendary British movie and music hall sensation, George Formby. Available as left-handed model.

The Orange Blossom (OB) banjos harken back to Gold Tone's early days and their popularity hasn't diminished over the decades. These professional-grade banjos evoke the great pre-WW ll banjos played by the Masters: Earl Scruggs, Don Reno, J.D. Crow all depended on those great banjos from the Midwest USA to power their sound. The OB-250 has everything needed to produce THAT tone: a sand-cast bell brass flathead tone ring, a cast one-piece resonator flange circling a multi-ply maple rim with twin coordinator rods and an extra-deep curly maple multi-ply resonator for better low-end response. The curly maple neck has a bound ebony fretboard with hearts & flowers inlay. The bracket hooks even have metric threading to enable finer tension adjustment. The price includes a hard shell case. Available as left-handed model.

The BG-250F is our value-priced, fully professional-spec Bluegrass banjo; its equipment list reads like pre-war collector banjo, but its price is within reach of any player searching for a keeper banjo. Featuring Gold Tone's bell-brass tone ring and die-cast brass one-piece flange, the BG-250F has a bound rosewood fretboard (with tasteful snowflake inlays) a maple neck with GT Master planetary tuning machines and a hard-rock maple rim for brighter tone. The straight-line tailpiece provides equal down-pressure for all strings for more balanced playing response. Available as left-handed model.
