Excellent

This model Fairbanks is rarely seen as a banjeaurine. The banjo is in a period case, and is in excellent condition. The Eleanor D. Son patented tailpiece is stamped "Pat Mar 6, 1894," and may be original to the banjo. There are some typical separation lines in the pear wood overlay on the peg head; otherwise, the banjo is in near mint condition.
