Maker: Gibson
Year: 1929
Notes:

A one-owner, near pristine and original TB-4 40-hole arch-top tenor banjo from 1929.

Possibly a custom instrument, this other-wise typical TB-4 has a Walnut Burl resonator back with no rings.

One-piece flange, Chrome-plated, Flying Eagle pattern, original 2-band Grover pegs, original clam-shell tailpiece,  clean and original Gibson hard case, original Gibson bracket-wrench. Very light playing wear.

Is there a nicer one anywhere?
