Paramount Style B 4-String Plectrum Resonator Banjo Early 1920s w/Hard Case

With a fast and familiar 23" scale length and 1 1/8" nut width, this beautifully worn early 1920s (SN:5635) New York-built Paramount Style B Plectrum Resonator banjo boasts warm and resonant all-maple construction with an inlaid rosewood fingerboard, and exactly the budget friendly Jazz Age accents we're looking for, including a herringbone-bound neck, rosewood accents and binding throughout, and ornate, nicely aged headstock inlay work. At just about a century old, this increasingly rare Paramount Style B has plenty of stories left to tell!

This Early 1920s Paramount Style B 4-String Plectrum Resonator Banjo is in Very Good condition, part of a single-owner, climate controlled collection, with visible wear consistent with age and appropriate use, including a professional headstock repair at some point early in its life (pictured in detail), a patched 11th fret (pictured, does not affect playability or performance), and light surface wear throughout. Tuners, head, and bridge professionally replaced a few times over this instrument's life, most are included in banjo case (pictured), also includes a variety of strings, picks, and a mute. Includes original fitted hard case, missing strap (pictured). 

All instruments from the Old Town School Music Store are professionally inspected and set-up before shipping, and directly support the missions, programs, and continued growth of the Old Town School of Folk Music.
