This is an Alvarez Denver Belle Deluxe that was made in the early 1980’s in Japan. This is absolutely gorgeous and extremely rare.
This has a Rosewood resonator (probably Brazilian) with a mahogany neck. The fretboard is also rosewood and also is probably Brazilian Rosewood. At this time Brazilian Rosewood was much more common in production. The hardware is all original and gold with an engraved armrest and tailpiece. There is abalone binding in each side of the resonator and the back of the resonator. The front lip of the resonator has checkerboard purfling. There is a Flying Eagle inlay pattern on the fretboard with a torch inlaid on the front and back of the headstock. The tuners are gold with very nice buttons. Finally the neck heel is heavily carved which is a very nice touch.
This is a top quality banjo and most Denver Belle’s do not have gold and abalone binding like this. This is very, very rare. The case is a Tweed hardshell case which is gorgeous.
This banjo is in absolutely fantastic condition. The gold looks incredible. There is some gold worn off of the armrest and a little on the playing side of the tension hoop but not much. Most of the gold is intact and glows. The finish looks great and has been shined. The fretboard has been cleaned and oiled and the frets are in fantastic shape all the way down.
There is some fogging on the face of the headstock in the finish. In addition this once had a 5th string capo and at another time spikes which have both been removed. This has left 3 pin sized holes in the fretboard and a couple of pin sized holes in the binding which have been plugged. These are tiny marks that are somewhat hard to see at all. The banjo is absolutely gorgeous with all this gold and it has barely been used so it is clean. The case is in fantastic shape inside and out.
This has been set up at the Banjo Warehouse in Atlanta. The head is the original Remo frosted head and is set to 90. The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and this is set up to play great. This feels great to play and can be played fast with loads of tone and great volume. This banjo is cleaned up, set up and ready to go. This is the banjo you are looking for.
