condition: good
make / manufacturer: Bacon and Day
model name / number: SuperBanjo
1930 to 1931 Bacon and Day based on the Serial number. It places it between 1930 and 1931 for the 29959 number. It is in very good shape for a vintage instrument in my opinion, but it does show signs of use. It has amazing sound, and is of course beautiful. I had it appraised and had some repairs done for sale. The value came in at the 2000 listing price post repairs. The repair receipt and appraisal is in the images.

This banjo has the wood based tone ring, not the Silverbell metal insert. See pictures.

Things to disclose,
There is some Fret wear, short bridge, and the neck angle might need some improvement. Estimated repair for that was 500, but not deemed required. I would see how it fits you first.

Willing to discuss shipping.

Lovely rare banjo. Hope it goes to a good home.

Cash or paypal if in person.
