1930 Serial # 97185. Here’s a great opportunity to own a Deluxe at a bargain price. Maple, gold plated, engraved tension hoop, flange and tailpiece. The Grover 2-Band tuners are a little bit "notchy", but they hold perfectly and have solid pearl buttons, carved heel, decorated resonator, some playing wear on the neck, the gold plating has aged nicely except for on the hooks which would benefit from being replaced, the engravings are crisp and clear.
All in all, a lovely banjo and great value for money. HSC. £2200
