1927 Gibson MB3 5 string conversion Banjo NO HOLE TONE RING 8823-58
This is a 2 piece flange 5 string conversion banjo. The tone ring is an original raised head no hole tone ring. The rim and the resonator have different FONs but both are definitely original Pre War parts. In addition the rim has a new reproduction label. What probably happened was either the rim was refinished or replaced but the rim itself is definitely Pre War. All of the parts are original except for the neck. The finish on the resonator is original and is very clean. This has a Don Bryant neck with Diamonds inlaid up the fretboard. The banjo is definitely a cool Pre War banjo and includes a nice hardshell case.
The banjo is definitely in really good shape. The resonator is gorgeous and that is the original finish. The hardware is all clean in fact the tension hoop and flange are glowing!! The neck is in great shape with clean finish and a clean fretboard. The frets are clean all the way down the fretboard. There are spikes at the 7th-9th frets. This has been set up and plays great and sounds even better. The hardshell case is also clean. This is a great example of a pre war no hole MB3 banjo.
