Vintage 1888 Fairbanks & Cole 5 String Banjo
Price: $550.00 USD
In need of TLC this Fairbanks & Cole openback banjo has a metal-clad wood rim, 18 fret ebony fretboard neck. It has 30 brackets, tailpiece appears to be original. Violin peg tuners. Missing some of the inlays. Would be a gem for those who have the skills to bring back to life. Head would need to be replaced.
