As stated, this banjo was originally a plectrum banjo, and the neck was shaved down on the driver side making for a 5 string configuration; very skinny nut width, ONE INCH, ebony board atop original pearwood; four Off-set tab grover tuners on peghead. Lots of finish checking and cosmetic wear throughout, particularly on peghead overlay.
