Description

Japan in the 1970's and 1980's was striving to outdo the American music manufacturers and did an exceptional job at that.  This banjo was the top of the line for Alvarez and not only is an exceptional banjo is also a work of art.

This has a thick maple rim with a brazilian rosewood resonator.  The hardware is nickel.  This has a brazilian rosewood neck with a brazilian rosewood fretboard.  The fretboard has a Flying Eagle inlay pattern.  There is black and checkerboard binding on each side of the neck. This looks incredible.  The resonator has abalone inlay on each side on top of a strip of abalone on the back.  This has all original hardware with a two piece flange and a clam shell tailpiece.  The only missing part is one screw for the truss rod cover which a lot of people would never notice.

There is carving at the neck heel which looks excquisite.  The headstock has more inlay on the front and back of the headstock along with the alvarez logo.  This banjo is absolutely gorgeous and if it was made in America today would probably cost $8500.

This also has a 20 hole tone ring which is a very big deal because this has a lot of volume and a lot of sound.  The rosewood gives this a very warm tone and this has great projection.  This also includes a hardshell case which I believe to be original.

Condition

This banjo is in phenomenal condition.  There is a hint of button scratching on the back of the resonator but it is minor.  It is also very hard to see at all.  The hardware has been professionally cleaned at the Banjo Warehouse and is stunning.  This banjo really glows.  The neck and fretboard are both clean as well with very clean frets.  Only the first few frets show any sign of use and that is minor at best.  This has a 5th string capo but no spikes.  This is definitely clean and the case is as well.

Set Up

This has been professionally set up at the Banjo Warehouse in Atlanta.  The head is a new Huber frosted head which is set to 90 on a drum dial.  The strings are also new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings.  The action is set nicely and is adjustable.  The banjo also has correct intonation.  This is a gorgeous and rare banjo with top quality materials that has been professionally set up for maximum pleasure.  Thanks!
