Alvarez 5 String Banjo / Made in Japan around 1974-75
Price: $725.00 USD
This is a good banjo, in good condition, I'm not aware of any problems. Experienced players have played it so I could hear it, and it has a very good sound. I bought it with the intention of learning to play. For a long time I have practiced, but due to a broken wrist a few years ago, I just cannot make my fingers reach all the strings, to play the cords, that's the reason for putting it up for sale. The tuning pegs have been replaced with new 5 Star geared ones. The originals were friction. There are fifth string hooks for the 7th, 9th & 10th frets. The case is sound in good physical shape, but old, and it looks old, but it is well able to protect the instrument. The key to lock the case is missing, so I always carry it with my arm around it, or a belt or something around it to make sure it will not open. Never had any trouble, but want to be cautious. Shipping weight is 25lbs. I will consider best a best offer. I have not found a serial number on the instrument. Shipping Monday - Friday.
Shipping: Shipping price depends on location and zip code.
