About This Listing

Here we have a very rare Walter Taylor fretless picollo 5-string from the late 19th century. Walter’s father was a saddle and harness maker and initially he became a gunsmith.

This picollo is a very nice decorative piece from a bygone era. The ebony fretboard has been beautifully inlaid with bone and metal dots. This type of armrest is also a thing we’ve never seen before. On the heel we find the maker's mark “Walter Taylor”.

There's a slight warp in the neck , see photos. We chosed to sell the banjo "as-is". So, it will need some work, but it's also a very rare and decorative piece.
