Gibson All American 5 String Banjo Reissue #46Gibson All American 5 String Banjo Reissue #46 Dated 12-19-79 - Excellent condition - Hand carved and hand painted with the understanding that less than 75 of this model was made and some of these were tenors. History of the United States inlaid in the fingerboard, carved & painted "Bald Eagle" headstock, carved & painted "Bald Eagle" on back of resonator, gold engraved "All American" tailpiece, gold tuners with Pearl buttons, gold engraved parts and 5 ply maple rim with colored wood inlay. Basically the reproduction of the originals with the exception of the thicker rim and set up with a Snuffy Smith bridge. This is a very good sounding banjo and the playability is excellent. There is a thin finish crack at the bottom of the peghead that runs around both sides and you have to look close to see it but it cannot be felt with your fingers. Beautiful and rare instrument that is difficult to find as you see very few for sale. Comes with OHC and a copy of the early 70's catalog featuring Roy Clark on the cover playing one.
