1929 Gibson TB4 5 string conversion banjo. Includes hardshell case. CALL TODAY 404-372-5482
1929 Gibson TB4 5 string Conversion Banjo. This is the classic Pre War Style 4 banjo. This has a dark and haunting tone with lots of volume. This is one of the best sounding styles of banjo around. If you are looking for a premium Pre War Banjo this one is for you!!!
This 1929 Gibson TB4 is a nice all original pot with an original raised head tone ring. The neck was made at Gibson and likely during the Greg Rich era. The shell is a fat boy shell. The flange is pulling a bit but that doesn’t really effect the function. The neck has a rosewood fretboard with a flying eagle inlay. The fact the neck is a Gibson is definitely significant. In a way this is a factory conversion. When you add that it is Rich era you now have a top of the line factory conversion banjo!!!
The banjo is in really good shape. This walnut resonator looks just great!!! The frets are also in really good shape which is a huge plus. As noted earlier the flange is pulling a bit but that doesn’t effect the sound. This whole banjo is in great shape which really makes a big difference in function. This feels great and also looks great. This is a great condition banjo that has absolutely been well taken care of. This has all original parts on the pot and even the neck was made at Gibson.
Sound and Playability
It would be difficult to find a better Pre War Gibson banjo. This has that classic Pre War tone. This is loud with a dark and haunting tone. The banjo plays fast with lots of volume.
