Item #: DROL326
see photos. From a private collection. Beautiful early Paramount / Wm.
Lange Style 1 Tenor Banjo,c.1923.. Appears all original including
gold plated Patented Page Tuners with M.O.P. buttons,gold plated
hardware, Brazilian Rosewood neck & resonator,carved heel & back
of headstock,Improved Paramount Pat.Pending Tailpiece..many high
end appointments. All hooks,nuts & shoes appear original. Overall
condition is Good to Very Good. The gold plating shows some dullness
& wear. There are spots & areas where the plating is worn
through...perhaps 15 to 20% of surfaces.The plating has wear on the Armrest. The rest of the plating has some darkened
areas from use & exposure. It may clean up some. I have not
attempted anything except to wipe dust off with a soft dry cloth. I'm trying to be detailed and
posted a lot of photos. As this banjo approaches 100 years of age it has
held up well. The original hard shell case is in good
condition for its age. The magenta colored zippered shroud does work, protects the banjo.
