Jas. Morrison 12"

  • Good Condition
  • Year: 1890
  • Includes Hard Shell Case
  • Serial #: 390


Another example of a James Morrison stamped banjo (made in NY); 12" spun-over rim assembly with unusual "ball-bearing-esque" tonering (beads sit behind the brass hoop and interact with rim's edge), long 28" scale mahogany neck with ebony fretboard, lovely pearlwork featuring stars and crescent moons. Decent for frailing; notable forward relief (common with these banjos) with some fretwear and pitting. Setup with nice original Abel tailpiece
