RC ALLEN TENOR/PLECTRUM BANJO

Price: $950.00 USD

For sale: Beautiful Tenor/Plectrum 20 fret banjo by RC ALLEN. The story about this banjo is that RC built it for his girlfriend's mom at the time, hence the name "Betty" engraved in the armrest, they broke up and he ended up keeping it. I think it was built in 1980. This is the ultimate 4 string because of its neck scale, sounds great in many tunings. It CUTS through an orchestra with a dark, beautiful tone. I've used this on a few Broadway shows here in NYC and it blends well with all kinds of instrumentation. Here is a recording from the "Prince of Broadway" cast recording where "Betty" is very well heard. It's got all that vibe. It's a RARE beauty. Comes with sturdy Gator road case.
