Lovely Paramount Style "A" from William Lange in 1928 (No. 10152) in the midst of his best production. The banjo is in very good playing condition with a straight neck and comfortable action - recently set up with new Fiberskyn head and new Maple bridge. The instrument appears otherwise all-original. There are a few small marks or scratches but overall for an instrument that is almost a century old, it is remarkably preserved with the metal parts nicely shining and all the marquetry and MOP inlays intact. The original offset geared tuners all work and the tone is clear and present. Comes with its original case in fair but very usable condition.
