Pre War tone in a professional grade conversion. If you want a great deal on the vintage Pre War Gibson sound this is for you!!!
This 1930 Gibson TB1 is a maple banjo with an original pot metal flange. This has a new coordinator rod, tension hoop, tail piece, thumb screws and arm rest. This also has a new JD Crowe Tone ring. The neck is an unknown 5 string conversion neck but whoever made it was definitely a professional. The neck is maple with a rosewood fretboard. There is a Flying Eagle inlay pattern going up the fretboard.
This banjo has some light button scratching in the original finish on the back of the resonator. This is still definitely in good shape especially considering that this is as old as it is. The neck is straight and the neck is also in great shape. The frets show almost no wear and are fat and round and meaty all the way down the neck. There are spikes at the 7th-10th frets.
Sound and Playability
The maple gives this a clean and almost sweet tone. This still has that pre war bark and the banjo has a lot of volume!! Check out the video. This has been set up by the Pros at Banjo Warehouse. The action is low and this plays fast with a lot of volume.
