Quick Facts

Fairbanks & Cole




11 1/2" Head, 27" Scale

Very Good

This unusual Fairbanks & Cole Imperial model banjo has flush ivory frets and ivoroid tuners. The inlays are tasteful and unusual. The tail piece appears to be of the period. The finish is a little dull, but could be spruced up with some polish. The metal parts are in good condition and appear to be original. This is the perfect banjo for someone wanting a fretless banjo with the old time Fairbanks sound.
