Gibson Christmas Banjo Limited Edition (2009)

Photo for Ad 133004

No. 3 of a planned Limited Edition of 12, high-gloss Christmas Brown finish, double-bound flame maple resonator with inlaid frosted holly leaf design by Gibson artist Darron DuBose, Mastertone flathead tone ring, gold hardware including 1-piece flange, flame maple neck, bound ebony fingerboard with special holly leaf inlays, plus "silver bells" at 12th fret and Mastertone block at 21st, ebony headstock overlay with holiday inlays and special script "Gibson" in pearl, gold V2 geared tuners with pearloid buttons, 1-7/32" nut, 26-3/8" scale, OHSC, on consignment. EC

$6,800.00

Terry Mead Wood Top Banjo $275

Photo for Ad 132984

This is a Mead banjo that the original owner told me was bought in the early ‘90s. It has a standard scale length, cherry pot and mahogany neck. I believe the top is redwood. The instrument has a gentle, quiet voice (think mountain dulcimer in tone and volume) and makes an excellent practice instrument in an apartment or with family or neighbors who don’t want to hear your banjo practice. The banjo is number 61 and is in excellent condition.

$275 plus $25 shipping to continental US

No case but I can provide a new tan-colored Gretsch gigbag for an extra $25. Regardless it will be well-packed and will ship insured.

Would consider a trade for a decent quality low-end resonator banjo (RK-R15 or similar).

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.

Hard shell case is Guaranteed to work properly but may have cosmetic blemishes.

2006 Deering 30th Anniversary

Photo for Ad 132644

$3,995.00

Case: Original case

Description: This banjo is another example of Deering's superior craftsmanship and excellent tone. It features a beautiful curly maple resonator with a deeper "Tenbrooks" profile, neck with special 30th Anniversary mother-of-pearl inlay pattern, and Jens Kruger tone ring. From driving bluegrass to more melodic passages, this banjo has you covered. It has some light play wear and normal aging of the metal parts on a banjo that has seen some playing time. There were only 30 of this model made and the original suggested retail price was $7,799. This banjo definitely won't last!

Lyon & Healy (Unmarked) - 19th Cen. Banjo - 5To7String Setup

Photo for Ad 132495

Fantastic outlier of a banjo, that collectors estimate is an unmarked ca. 19th cen. Lyon & Healy. Lower two strings are double-coursed, for a unique and quite ethereal tonal effect. Flush-fret fretless, clean aesthetic. $740 and ships free to CONUS. More pics and elaboration via the Reverb link. Thanks!

Tunbridge Ware Banjo - Ca. 1870s Mosaic - UK Arts&Crafts

Tunbridge Ware Banjo - Ca. 1870s Mosaic - UK Arts&Crafts

Photo for Ad 132493

Full ad crossposted on Reverb - more pics, et cetera there. 1870s seven string fretless banjo - [can set up and play as a five string] - Tunbridge-ware decorated. 11 3/8" rim - a primitive grain measure-like scalloped hoop, bone (or possibly ivory) tailpiece, friction pegs, modern style nickel plated hooks and shoes - provenance of the latter unknown. Minstrel-style geometries and def. once a player's kit - you can see the grooves on the back of the neck where someone improvised frets with string. When set up to play - either as a 5 or 7 string banjo - this Tunbridge-ware kit has a sound that transports you back 150 years, quite haunting. The inlay mosaic is a remarkable example of UK Tunbridge-ware craft - there are hundreds of small inlays that cohere into this complex, integrated geometric pattern. This banjo distinguishes itself with a very refined, resolved visual vibe - more line less curve - many Tunbridge-ware banjos, conversely, have an overblown complicated aesthetic that this one admirably avoids. If you're a Tunbridge collector, or really drawn to the energy of the mosaic pattern as artwork itself, or just looking for a sesquicentenarian banjo that still can drive a dance floor - this is it. FWIW - the banjo yields almost 16" of fretboard and its about 34 1/2" from top of peghead to tailpiece. Sells with SSC, bridge for five or seven string setups, and strung (slacked for travel) with a mix of gut and a wound. $1240 and ships CONUS $65. Thanks!

Aria Pro II Tenor Banjo 800$ OBO

Photo for Ad 132426

Here we have a late 70s made Aria Pro II with resonator, tenor banjo, this is just a really really good banjo, it is currently tuned to GDAE for Irish trad, and played with a pick but it could easily be tuned to DGBE or CGDA with different strings.
Recently had a luthier look it over and it was appraised at 1500-1600$.
Very loud, real crisp clear bright tone.

Would trade for a nice 5 string fiddle or high quality smaller sized guitar.

Buyer pays shipping, includes case.

2014 Huber VRB-4 Custom Burled Walnut Banjo

Photo for Ad 132408

$4,650.00

Excellent burled walnut RB-4 style banjo with radiused Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard. In fabulous condition with only the slightest signs of player wear.

Exc(+) condition. Serial number 1214-151.

Very fine straight-grain Walnut neck. Resonator shows intense burl figure. Entire banjo bound with cream-black-cream binding with wooden marquetry concentric circles in back of resonator. Double-cut peghead. Ebony peghead overlay has Huber logo inlaid at top and Flying Eagle pattern pearl inlay. Radiused Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard has pearl Flying Eagle inlay pattern. 21st fret has very well done TRUETONE inlay with inlaid border around the letters.

Almost no sign of player wear… the head shows slight signs of finger position. Faintest sign of frets being played. One small mar in the center of resonator back. Otherwise, in great shape.

These Huber RB-4 models usually come with interesting Walnut in back of resonator, but this one was ordered with Strong Burl Walnut figure. Radius fingerboard is another custom feature. Lastly, many of these come with Nickel plated hardware, but this one has Chrome plating, like many of the Gibson originals.

This banjo is wonderfully resonant, and has wide range of different tonal variations possible. It sounds great, looks great, plays great.

This banjo originally cost over $5700 with all of the options.
Comes with the original hard case for only $4650.
