Unsigned Eagle Bracket Flush Fret

  • Excellent + Condition
  • Year: circa 1870s
  • No Case


We're pleased to present for sale this fine and original example of a post-Civil War flush-fret banjo in remarkably clean condition, that still plays and sounds well 150 years later; lightweight. The 11" rim assembly was made using a single shiplap; 8 eagle brackets are present as it original brass endpin; both the dowel stick and rim still show the original red colored milk paint, and the rim's exterior was grain-painted to look like oak; slightly later tailpiece, and later bridge. The mahogany neck has 12 flush frets that indicate a 25-1/4" scale length; square peghead shape; equipped ebony friction pegs (likely later).
