Bacon & Day "Silver Bell" #1

  • Excellent Condition
  • Year: circa 1925
  • Serial #: 14754


This is an excellent players grade instrument in the style of a Silver Bell #1. The neck appears to be original, but has been refinished at some point. The fretboard appears to have been replaced and features a zero fret. Repaired dowel on the front of the peg head and dowel stick (evidence of past center mount resonator). The wooden rim is likely later (evidence of restamped serial number) and is outfitted with a rolled tonering w/ hoop. Repro hardware including hooks, nuts, shoes, two-step flange (resonator back original). Set up with an oettinger tail piece and Grover two-tab tuning machines.
