Banjos

Perfectly set up by Eric's Guitar Shop. Journalist and old-time picker Rick Abrams won the Vega after selling a few of his own instruments to purchase multiple subscriptions. One is on the curved shadow of what looks like an old oversized pickguard pre-refinish. The tone of this guitar is rich and full, with all the power and projection needed to be heard in any big band of the 1940s. American instrument manufacturers rushed ukes to the market as fast as they could turn them out. This privacy policy tells you about the information we collect from you when you use our website.

The peg head scroll has seen a repair long ago, but it has remained stable for many years. When they return two hours later, Seeger is clearly bone-tired and not in the best of moods, but he agrees to pose for a few pictures. This is great for guitarists who want to learn a new instrument. This combined with the increased body size, makes for one powerful tone machine. The segmented bridge even has a pearl dot in each end piece. Ebony fingerboard has graduated abalone dot inlays. The Recurve is a no stress, no worry case that we at Northfield can really get behind and think you should too.

The tuners are Shaller and all hardware is nickel finished. Because of this expert work, now the guitar is much more powerful, much more evenly balanced and ranks highly against other examples from the 1930's. This bass side has recently been replaced by our local luthier, John Joyner. Seeger re-inks his gentler variation every time he replaces the head on his instrument. Top shows some heavy fingernail wear into the Spruce between pickguard and binding at waist. The condition is excellent with only one scratch near the wood inlaid rosette, and a short back crack, repaired long ago. Prices listed reflect Nickel chrome hardware.

Every edge of this instrument is highly decorated with multiple bindings and its rosewood fingerboard is inlaid with large rectangular blocks of mother-of-pearl with an abalone notch in each one. The tuning machines are gold plated Planet style and curiously, extra holes were drilled between the first and second and third and fourth tuning machines. Clean, clear tone, lots of bark and set up to play smoothly. Recent setup and very clean specimen. Very rare Early Serial 00008.

His father, Charles, was an esteemed conductor and pioneering ethnomusicologist whose left-leaning views would influence his children. One can easily see that the high quality of luthiery was definitely a family tradition. Four-on-a-plate tuners with pearl buttons complete the picture as seen from the front. It is possible to get a hybrid banjo that utilises the playability of a guitar, while still sounding like a banjo. Rip-Roaring and ready to go--our Moss Green and Natural Recurve cases are back in stock! The guitar section plays almost effortlessly and its' tone is sweet and resonant, while the bass strings resonate powerfully. By the dawn of the next decade, the seeds of a looming folk boom were being planted by Seeger, Fred Hellerman, Ronnie Gilbert and fellow Almanac alum Lee Hays. Pete Seeger was in the U.

Perhaps they were added on, but they could be original. This temporary job was good enough to allow the guitar to be played and enjoyed for many years until we acquired it and decided to restore it. The width at the nut is 1. For players, this mandolin-banjo creates that great funky tone that is the hallmark of jug bands and country blues artists. All photographs by Thomas D. A previous owner has added red stick-on dots position markers to the fretboard easily removed if you prefer , and upgraded the original friction pegs to newer geared tuning machines. So, I took it back and had him put the frets in all over again, so that the bridge would be nearer the center of the instrument.

To Great Lengths: The Far Reach of Pete Seeger

Seeger generally picks the banjo with his bare fingers. But the lignum vitae, he knew, called for harder work, so he enlisted a friend with a band saw to rough it into shape before he set at it with rasps and files, urging it into the form that has graced countless album covers and iconic photos since its birth circa 1955. This example has some eye-dazzling appointments. Items are made with traditional figured maple in the rims and necks. Epiphone won the loudness sweepstakes hands down, by increasing the scale length to the now more common 25.

This is an amazing opportunity to add the crowning touch to any world-class vintage guitar collection. It's not that hard, Thanks, Keith A great example of a 1916 Gibson A4 mandolin in excellent condition. Frets are in good shape but show moderate denting. To shorten the tale a bit. This was made about 10 years ago with all top quality parts. Even rarer among the style 8 instruments is this example, with unique side carving not seen on any other. This particular instrument has ivoroid-bound f-holes, something we have never seen on any other A-50.

Lightly built, with Mahogany back, sides and neck, Brazilian Rosewood peghead overlay, Gabon Ebony fingerboard and bridge, and Adirondack Red Spruce top. All of this work was performed by John, who is a 39-year luthier associated with us. In mint, condition, this a perfect electric guitar for studio or live. Seeger does keep a few additional instruments around the house, but he is not so much of a packrat when it comes to gear. Great playability, great tone, structurally restored by a 40-year experienced luthier. The neck is set and has a rosewood fingerboard with abalone inlays and binding.

The neck is straight, but perhaps the best feature is that wonderful jazz age tone which emerges effortlessly from this rare and beautiful Epiphone banjo. Neither pose any structural concern. Seeger, who turned 90 this past spring, no longer can recall exactly what banjos he played in the Weavers. Subsequent to that, the other side cracked off, and he asked me to glue that back together. Not only does it possess the perfect tone for a jazz or swing ensemble, but some top of the line decorative appointments as well. If you have any questions send me an email.
