Alvarez Denver Bell 5-String Resonator Bluegrass Banjo 1977. BRAZILIAN ROSEWOOD
This is a fantastic sounding professional level banjo that sounds better than banjos costing triple. The one piece flange models are legendary for their tone and compare favorable to the best of the vintage Japanese GoldStar models of the late seventies and early eighties. Excellent playability and superb bluegrass tone. Frets are good. lots of playware and cosmetic ware. One piece nickel flange has been repaired in two areas. This example is a true natural RELIC with major mojo. Structurally the banjo is completely structurally sound. This one is puremagic.
