Trujo Style A Plectrum Banjo, Vintage 1932
  • Made by Gibson for SF Based Studio
  • Specially Designed Deep Body
  • Carved Lion's Head Peghead

Product Description

A rare Gibson-made deep bodied banjo designed and sold by the teaching duo of Velma Truett and Harry George, who operated several studios in Oakland and San Francisco in the late '20s to early '30s. This one is in excellent original condition including its original hard shell case, with just a few minor scratches and wear. These are known for their deep, resonant tone that retains the typical banjo volume, along with its iconic gargoyle-ish lion's-head carved peghead, Bacon-like inlays and resonator.
