This is an extraordinarily rare variation of top of the line Gibson "ART" banjos. The instrument features rosewood rim, neck and resonator. It is beautifully carved and painted on resonator, back of peghead and heel in musical motif. The metal parts are gold and highly engraved. There is a professionally repaired and virtually invisible crack to the heel of the neck. The banjo appears completely original with the exception of the interior resonator mounting nuts and some minor touch up to the back of the resonator. The tone ring is 40 hold arch top and the rim is two piece flange.
