Ukuleles & Banjo Ukes, Tenor, Banjos1927 Gibson Mastertone Style 3 Plectrum Banjo

1927-28 Gibson Mastertone Style 3 Plectrum Banjo
This Gibson PB-3 is a remarkable instrument. Featuring a hoop and plate flange and Grover 2 tab tuners. Like many banjos from the first part of the last century, this instrument is amalgamation of at least two instruments both dating to '27/28 (albeit, with different FONs). From specimen A: neck (Brazilian board, diamond and squares inlay), pot, rods, hoop, 2 tab Grover tuners, with clear Mastertone logo. From specimen B: double bound, fully marked resonator. The plate, tension hoop, hooks and nuts might be from a slightly later issue. No armrest. Later tailpiece with no cover. No case. New head. Great sounding 'jo for an early jazz or Dixieland band...or dare I say 5-string conversion... $3999
