This TB-3 had been stored for around 50 years before it arrived at our shop. It's very clean and appears to be 100% original and unmodified. The banjo is exactly as it was when it came to us--all we did was wipe it down for photographs.

- From the first batch of 1-piece flange TB-3's
- Original Roger's 3-star head
- "Fat Boy" rim measures .625"
- Flange has slight pull with no cracks or damage
- Tension hoop has slight flare but is still solid and serviceable
- Some fine pitting and oxidation to finish on flange and tension hoop
- Tailpiece has a crack at the 90 degree bend which lets it flex a bit but it is not broken apart. It could possibly be reinforced by silver soldering or brazing
- Some wear to corner of arm rest
- Misc. scratches to resonator and one wear spot on resonator sidewall at nine o'clock position (see photos)
- Includes original hardshell case

Please feel free to call or email with questions.
