Gibson TB-4
It's not very often good quality Mastertone tenor banjos come to the market, so I was very happy when a customer asked me to list this beautiful TB-4 for him. Serial # 8103-19. Mahogany neck and resonator, maple rim, Ball-Bearing tonering. Recently re-fretted and refinished in a traditional manner. The Ball-Bearing tone ring system, is arguably the best of all the Gibson variants. Stunning to play, with looks to match. HSC. £3000 Photos
