TOMMYS GUITARS & TRADING POST. For sale is a Vintage 1960's Merlin 5 String Long Neck Banjo with original hardshell case, Made in Chicago. This banjo is as rare as they come, only around 100 were made in the 1960's before the company was liquidated. A very unique design, the banjo features a chrome long neck with 25 frets, chrome body and resonator with a fiberglass tone ring, awesome pearl inlays on the fretboard and tuners, very nice tone, wood headstock cap, a true work of art.
Has some wear on the chrome and a couple drill hole spots on the resonator rim, the action is very playable and the neck angle adjustment is pretty simple with an allen wrench. Very hard to find these and the only couple ones I have found, they are all unique in heir own way.
