This will make a great beginning banjo for the student! This was made in Japan, likely during the 1980’s. It has a nice tone and fine action. It has wear from a lifetime of use, but it has been used, which is a testament to this banjos sound and playability. The friction 5th string peg has been changed to a geared Grover one, so it functions easily and holds tune well. 5th string capos have been installed at the 7th and 9th frets. A great banjo for starting out!
