Vintage May-Bell Banjo w/Tate Neck - $350 + $50 Shipping

SOLD! This is a really unique banjo, and it is a great deal for someone looking for a beginning or step-up instrument. Also good to take with you places where you maybe wouldn't want to take a more expensive instrument. This started out its life as a 4-string banjo, but had a Tate 5-string neck put on it. This does not have coordinator rods or a truss rod, but has been completely setup here and plays very easily! I believe it is a mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard and mother of pearl inlay; maple Sampson bridge; Waverly tailpiece; I think it is a maple resonator with faux mother of pearl on the sides and black binding; newer Remo head; bone nut; planetary tuners and matching geared 5th string tuning peg. There is rust and wear on all the plated metal parts. Scratches and worn spots in the varnish on the resonator and the neck. Very little wear on the frets. Fingerboard inlays are fairly well done, but take a look at the pictures to make sure you are satisfied. Instrument is solid and in ready to play condition!

Used Gold Tone Dojo w/Hard Case - $575 + $50 Shipping

Like the sound of a dobro or steel guitar? Already know how to play a banjo? Or maybe you just want something a little more mellow than a banjo! This is it! Our used Gold Tone Dojo has been "souped up" with a Quarterman cone and new resonator plate, plus two extra sound holes and a tortoise-look pickguard! The previous owner disliked the regular 5th string spikes and installed a sliding 5th string capo. You can see where the spikes used to be, but we took this in our workshop and made them smooth and sanded the fingerboard in this place so it would look good. There are small cracks in the varnish on two sides of the 5th string peg. There are various scratches and dings on the front. When I took the resonator plate off the front of the instrument to clean and set it up, I noticed the cone area had been enlarged to make room for the Quarterman cone (larger cone equals larger/better tone quality). It is not exactly even, but is entirely covered up by the new resonator plate. A few of the screws don't make good contact with the body, but there 12 screws total and the resonator plate is in no danger of falling off or rattling. This is a GREAT sounding, mellow instrument! All plating is in very good condition. Planetary tuners and geared 5th string tuner. Very little fret wear. Bone nut. This is a 2005 model and is a one-of-a-kind! Don't miss out!

Mint Condition Deering Americana Banjo - $550 + $50 Shipping

This is technically a brand new banjo, but since it was not bought by The Bluegrass Shack, we are listing it as used. It is on consignment from a banjo player that won it in a contest and never played it. It comes with the original Deering box. This banjo has added depth due to a 12" pot. Nice sound for clawhammer style! Okay for 3-finger Scruggs style as well, but not very loud since it doesn't have a resonator. Banjo is in mint condition and is setup and ready to play. Please Note: Because this instrument is on consignment, it is non-returnable.

Used Gold Tone BG250F w/Hard Case - $799 + $65 Shipping

Great quality and wonderful sound! This Gold Tone BG250F has a super tone! White binding; Remo head; 5th string spikes installed at 7, 9 and 10; bone nut; planetary tuners with geared 5th string peg; mahogany resonator; full size tone ring! Everything is in excellent to very good condition. Some wear on head, and a scratche on the side of the resonator. See pictures. There are also a couple of very small dings on the back of the resonator, but I really couldn't get this to show up in the pictures. You have to really look to see it. Very little fret wear. Banjo is completely setup and ready to play! Great tone quality and ease of play!
