Product Description

Here we have a clean, extremely rare 5-string banjo produced after David Day joined with Fred Bacon in 1922 to form the Bacon & Day Banjo Co. As always, B&D instruments contained superbly delicate adornments in terms of wood selection and pearl inlaid designs on the peghead and fingerboard, single bound in ivoroid. Unlike most Super models, this exquisite example left Groton. Ct. as an original five string. This instrument includes the unique clip-on inset resonator of figured maple matching the neck while the heel cap features an inlaid multi-leafed fern design. It's in excellent original playing condition with minimal wear. This is a terrific example of a rarely seen B&D 5-string. And it sounds great!
