About This Listing

Here's a little 5 string Kent banjo made by Beltone in the 1959s. You often find these with dates and names but I painted this one with a funky banjo playing bear. It is a little over 38 inches long and the pot is 11 inches wide. It has good working tuners and is really solid and playable.

Check the video below of me playing it super badly!

The metal rim has been engraved with some weird folk art designs. I suppose someone wanted to personalize their AXE! The head is oversprayed with a thin coat of laquer to seal in the art. There are scratches and wear as you would expect from an instrument this old but everything is complete and playable!
