Banjos, Ukes, and Mandolins

c. 1928 Paramount Style B Tenor banjo at Pittsburgh Guitars 1928 Paramount Style B Tenor Banjo
Famous the world over in its time, and highly sought after by dance band players in the 1920s, Paramount banjos were marketed as "The Banjo with Piano Volume and Harp Quality." The position markers are a fancy pearl design, and the headstock is decorated with stylish pearl inlays. This banjo is almost completely original, with calfskin head, and in excellent overall condition given its age. It has assorted dings and scratches, one replacement tuner, and the playwear you'd expect from an 86-year old instrument. There is a crack in the heel that was repaired when we got it. Price includes good original hard case. (picture - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7)
c. 1923 Gibson TB-1 tenor banjo at Pittsburgh Guitars c. 1923 Gibson TB-1 Tenor Banjo
The smallest tenor banjo we have ever seen! This 29 inch tip-to-tailpiece banjo has an ebony fingerboard with pearl dot inlays, a 19" scale, an elevated pickguard, a working trap door, and an "Amrawco" calfskin head. It is in great shape for an instrument that is almost 100 years old. It has the expected dings, scratches, and playwear, and it has a heel crack that was repaired before we got it. Price includes a non-original, but vintage, hard case. (picture - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8)
