Description: Banjo - Vintage Regal Bakelite 5-string Banjo
Here is a really cool old folk banjo in very playable condition. The frets are level, the neck set perfect and it's been upgraded with a geared 5th string tuner. It is very stable and plays great. The Bakelite body and resonator give it a very unique sound. It works great with fingerpicks or clawhammer style. It's not heavy but is well balanced and feels very firm. The sound is earthy but carries well. It's very easy to record. Ships in what we assume is the original chipboard case. These are getting to be rare and are extremely rare in this condition. Thanks for looking...........
