FS - rare 1920's French Guitar Banjo

Similar to Django's Guitar banjo, this rare instrument was made in France sometime during the roaring 20's and was played by the Célestin's Jazz. Set up with a calf skin head, it is in excellent condition with a straight neck. It plays easily and with a powerful sound.

Available for a closer look and pick up in NYC. Shipping at buyer's expense. $2000 or best offer.

    Calfskin head but still plays well?

    Wow, I can tell you as a plectrum banjo player that that’s kind of rare as they are very vulnerable to changes in humidity... that’s why most of us banjo plunkers use plastic ones nowadays.

    Sounds like a good’un... good luck!

    I live in a little tourist town called Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, Canada, which is about twenty miles north of Niagara Falls.

    If you are ever planning on visiting the beautiful Niagara area, feel free to PM me and perhaps we can get together and do some jamming.

    Surprisingly enough, the head remains taut. (It's not the original, but it's an excellent quality calfskin.) If you know anyone interested in plunking a 6-string banjo, let me know, please.
