Pre War 1930 Gibson TB-1.  This is the Pre War sound at a great price!!!  If you want that classic, vintage Gibson tone this banjo is for you!!!



This is a maple all original pot with original nickel hardware that is is also in great shape. The hardware has some light age tarnish on it but still looks great and the wood is in absolutely fantastic condition. This is lighter than normal and the maple also has some figure in it which looks fantastic.  This is definitely a well preserved TB-1 tenor banjo that was a great fit for a conversion. The tone ring is a Huber vintage tone ring.  The neck is also a Huber neck and is a speed neck.  The neck has leaves and bows and the frets are in great shape .


This is in really good shape.  The finish looks great.  The hardware is really clean.  This has gorgeous wood with really nice metal.

Sound and Playability

The banjo is light which really helps the sound.  Plus it is a lot of fun to play when standing.  The light banjo gets great resonance which really helps the sound.  This has a Pro set up which means it is playing great.  The action feels great to play and this really plays fast!!!  This is the type of banjo that everybody likes and Gibson banjos are doing nothing but getting more valuable!! Every body seems to want a Gibson these days!!!! This 1930 Gibson TB-1 5 string conversion banjo could be the banjo that you are looking for!!!
