Subject: Vintage tenor banjo with HSC for sale
From: Big Ballad Singer
Date: 12 May 12 - 02:40 PM

Hello all. Long time, no visit for me.

Nutshell: Things are looking up somewhat; working one day a week, but the money's decent. Playing a little more frequently in church, still trying to work on networking/marketing self elsewhere.

I'm following up with my surgeon re: getting my cataract repaired.

Anyway, I have a vintage tenor banjo for sale. Japanese, probably late 60s or early 70s. Good action, good tone, newer frosted head.

I was planning on using it in my kids' shows/clown gigs, but I'm getting more offers to play guitar right now, and banjo is not one of my stronger instruments. I need the cash more than I need the hobby, if you catch my drift.

I'd like to get $150, shipping included. The banjo alone is probably worth that, The case has a tear in the covering, but is structurally solid as a rock.

Would trade even-up for a 12-string guitar with good low action. If it's got electronics, I might be able to add SOME cash.

Would also trade for an outboard preamp for acoustic/electric guitar. I got given a guitar by a friend that has a piezo pickup but no preamp and no controls. Willing to trade for something from LR Baggs, Boss or any other preamp that I can use to shape the tone and volume of an otherwise nice-sounding guitar.

Make me an offer... trying to keep the bills paid, as always.

Regards,

Big

No brand name; forgot to mention that. This banjo is from the same factory (-ies) that produced instruments under names like Lyle, etc.

I had a five-string that I sold a while ago that was from the same makers; it had lost its plastic nameplate-thing, too. I once had a lead on the name of the factory/company, but I have forgotten who they were.

This one has dot inlays as opposed to the MOP blocks I've seen on others. Resonator, looks like a one-piece flange (but I could be wrong).

Anyway, for a good-sounding and good-playing instrument like this, $125 to your door** is a great deal.

Regards,

Big

**Unless, of course, there's some ridiculously high fees associated with shipping to your country of residence. In that case, alternate arrangements shall gladly be made.

$125 shipped. Come on... someone's got to need a good backup instrument, or one for a student or friend to learn on. :)

Trade offers for almost ANY good-playing instrument considered now as well.

$100 SHIPPED. That's a TOTAL of $100. Only offering that price here because I know there are folk music lovers here who will appreciate a good instrument.

Got to sell ASAP. Drop me a PM if you're interested.
