Late teens Bacon Special Original 5 String Banjo EXC This sure appears to be an original Five string neck or else it's a perfect forgery. The fingerboard and frets are in almost unplayed condition. The serial number 33360 matches up on the rim and the inside of the resonator which also has "1933" added to the serial number which might indicate the year 1933 but this seems like an older model to me. ?? The dowel has the proper Made in Groton stamp on it. All the hardware is in fantastic condition and the tuning pegs (newer hign end ones) work great. Simple inlay on the headstock. Fancy pearloid resonator. It plays great and has a good strong sound. Newer hard shell case
Price: $1795.00

There are lots more pictures of this guitar at my actual website which can be found at Thanks
