This 2004 Huber Lancaster is a bluegrass dream! It plays and sounds incredible. It really has that Mahogany "punch" tone to it! This banjo was originally purchased from Sammy Shelor who plays banjo with the Lonesome River Band. Here's a chance to own a cool Huber banjo with some bluegrass history too! This banjo has one of the older style Huber Tone rings in it and a speed neck from Huber.
1995 Signature model of the late, great Earl Scruggs. This model is based on the Gibson Granada banjo Earl played for many years. Flamed maple neck and resonator. Sunburst finish. Flathead tone ring. With OHSC. Recently setup (less than a month ago) with frets dressed, new head by Mike Munford. This thing sounds and plays like a dream!

This brand new Gold Tone OB-2 is a re-issue of the classic Gibson Bowtie banjos from the 50s/60s; a premium 5-string banjo, designed for professionals and enthusiasts alike. Crafted with a multi-ply maple rim and a slim, fast-playing neck, it produces a crisp, bright tone. This banjo stands out for its high-quality construction, and traditional, authentic sound.
Dogwood Banjos of Minneapolis Minnesota make a great instrument at an affordable price. This is #172 and has an upgraded Vega PreWar style Brass wire armrest and a Purcell Bridge. Click here for pictures
This is undoubtedly the rarest prewar Gibson archtop banjo in existence! From the front it looks like a regular Florentine, with the ice cream cone peghead and scenes of Italy on the fingerboard, but the resonator and neck carvings are completely different than on any other banjo. It also has one piece flange construction, which is found on only a few Florentines.
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 banjo is worth every penny of the price!
The pot is 100% original except for the head and armrest. According to the previous owner, the 5-string neck was made by Gary Schatti in California. It is in like-new condition. This banjo has a lot of volume and good tone. It comes with a Deering padded gig bag.
This neat instrument started life as a mandolin banjo. It has a standard Mastertone pot with 40-archtop tone ring, and is in very nice condition. The neck was made by Richie Dotson.
Ode is back! They are being built in Boulder, Colorado by Zen Ogsbury, the son of Ode and Ome founder Chuck Ogsbury. I just received my first one, and I’m quite impressed. The pot has aged brass hardware, with a wood tone ring. The neck is made of North American cherry with EVO gold frets, hand-rubbed finish, and amber tuner knobs. The Buffalo nickel set in the peghead is a neat touch. This one has a 12” pot, and an 11” pot banjo should be arriving soon. A well-padded gig bag is included.
