Gibson Long Neck 5 String Banjo Circa 1962 Pete Seeger Dave Guard. VERY rare Gibson Long Neck 5 String Banjo. Produced Circa 1962, serial # 61076.
Since the flooding of the Cumberland River in Nashville ravaged their production facilities in May of 2010. The site was deemed irrevocable and was abandoned. Thus, this banjo is one of the best ever produced, and will accrue in value as time goes by.
Condition: The banjo is in excellent condition over-all. The action is nice and the sound is bold. It does show signs of age, after all it. The only issues I can find are a scratch on the back of the neck, and there are additional holes around the tuners.
It seems as though the tuners have been replaced at some point in time although these. Are, as far as I can tell, original.. Hence the additional holes on the back of the headstock (see close up photo). Ve searched the net for photos and, by comparison, the tuners look and seem to be the originals.
There are also a number of dings around the edges of the head stock. This is a one owner instrument, bought new back in the day.This is the same kind of banjo that the legendary Pete Seeger and Dave. Guard (of the Kingston trio) played. Included with the banjo is a modern-day gig bag. Sorry, there is no era-correct hardshell case. Re out there if you want one.
Please see the photos for a better idea of the condition. Please feel free to ask any questions. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
