Contessa 5-String Banjo

SKU: isi11138 Category: Tag:


Here is a really cool West German made 5-string banjo! Made by Framus in the 1960s, this instrument has a distinctive look, with it’s fancy stamped flange and armrest. It also features a multi-laminate maple neck and a maple resonator. The banjo has good volume and a bright tone. It is in very good used condition (parts of the flange oar bent and there is normal wear) and comes with a hard case.
