 Up for grabs is a very rare 1925-6, 4 string Gibson Mastertone Banjo.
SN#  8279-8
Its in need of restoration, Its  dusty and a bit paint worn since it  has been sitting in an attic for about 50 years  but in my humble opinion not far from being playable or looking like its fresh out of the factory with the right hands to restore this bad boy.
Now please let me be clear I AM NOT A BANJO PLAYER or a collector so please understand that I am only describing this item as I see it as a  guitar player.
This instrument is very old and looks as such.
The neck and head are in great shape with no cracks or twist, The frets are all intact and not loose.  the backside of the fret board can do with  a refinish.
It has Grover tuners all of which seem to work with no striping or turning tension.
The resonator is in good shape and the body is nice and solid with no cracks but again could use a refinish.
As per the photos you can see the the ‘’ Head’’ is busted but not impossible for it to be replaced
The fact is its not brand new and looks as such but with a little elbow grease and a good tech this thing can look and sound like a Gibson should
