Description

eBay item number:
270950920883
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.

For Sale is a Paramount B Banjo by William L. Lange. Patent # 1348652. This banjo has to be an early 1921 or 1922 due to the very low Serial # 345 found on the inner bar. There is no Paramount name plate; Lange probably didn't have them ordered yet!  This was a family banjo passed down from great uncle.  We currently have no players and would like someone to give it a good home.

The condition is very good. All of the wood is excellent.  There is some discoloration on the nickel plating.  ( don't want to clean - let a pro do it.)The Remo clear head is slightly warped. This sale includes the case and a banjo stand.

According to Gruhn Guitars after viewing the photos of the instrument:

"This instrument appears to be in fine original condition. It conforms to the very early specifications of the model, with maple neck with dark center laminations, maple resonator with wood purfling and bindings, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with decorative pearl inlay, wood marquetry trim on the side of the neck below the fingerboard, decorative pearl peghead inlay, typical Paramount-style tone ring, nickel-plated metal hardware, early-style non-adjustable tailpiece, and early-style non-geared tuners."

 Please review all the photos and comments above.  We will take all precautions in mailing this banjo safely or have it available to be picked up.  There will be no return accepted. Please contact after purchase to discuss shipping fees and options.  Thanks for looking and:

Please see our other listings for a 1924 Tenor Banjo lessons / song book and Banjo accessories - the items from the above case including a Paramount tuning key, strings, picks etc.
