According to Tsumura’s book, the serial number indicates this was made in mid 1925.Completely restored with refinish,original tuners,tailpiece and armrest.The neck heel was cracked and repaired skill fully some time ago.Im informed this is common enough and acceptable for these banjos and all but the very best examples will have this type of history.There is a slight bow in the neck but its well within limits and the action is good with a small shim inserted between fretboard and pot.Fitted with renaissance head and set up in GDAE tuning for Irish traditional music.Includes vintage case.
