1930 Bacon Senorita Plectrum For Repair or Conversion

Price: $250.00 USD

1930 Bacon Senorita Plectrum, As Is. For some time, this banjo was moping around the shop, directionless. Our first suggestion was that it join the circus, given the neck's flare for contortion - not only is it forward bowed and twisted, but bent to the side, too! Holy cow! Our next solution was to give it a good cleaning, stick it back together, and make it available as is. This turned out to be the more reasonable of the two options. This 1930 plectrum is a more than worthy project just waiting for a home or at least a good conversion neck. The aforementioned neck is mahogany with pearloid fretboard and peghead overlay. Scale is 26", and it still has the original tuners, which have been outfitted with new pearloid knobs. The 11" maple rim has no tonering, and like the resonator, is wrapped in pearloid. All hardware is nickel plated, including the 24 brackets and tulip flange. The resonator sports an attractive greenish-grey sunburst, and a few spots of pearloid on the resonator are in need of regluing. It's an altogether pleasing and unusual package, one that belongs on your workbench, not under the big top. Sent to your door in a wimpy guitar gig bag for $250 plus shipping.
