Eclipse 4000

An all-original Cole's Eclipse in superb original and untouched condition.

Carved boat-heel. Beautiful and multi-colored shell inlays, enhanced by the finest Consalvi engraving we've ever seen.

10 1/2" rim, 27" Scale. There are a couple of dings in the finish and a little loose back-strapping at the 4th string peg.

The pegs are carved ivory... the 5th peg seems to have been repaired. Neck is straight, action is good, virtually no signs of previous

use. Presently strung with nylon strings.

From a Private Collection, this banjo is offered on an As-Is basis.

A modern hard case will be provided.
