THE RAREST STYLE 11 GIBSON BANJO. This is a melody banjo, made in the late 1930s. In appearance, it looks like a mandolin banjo but with a 15-fret four string neck. It is 100% original and in virtually mint condition. I've never seen another one, and many years ago Curtis McPeake told me that as far as he knew it is the only one Gibson made. The price is $7500; a lot more than a TB-11, but this worth every penny of the price!
