VINTAGE F.J. BACON PROFESSIONAL 5-STRING BANJO, # WITH HARD CASE. on Mar 09, Vintage Bacon 5 String Banjo Patent date. Sold.

June 14, Update: I’ve been researching a little and apparently this banjo may have been made at the time when Bacon was having their banjos built by Lange in New York. That would explain why this looks and feels an awful lot like an Orpheum, Paramount, or Langstile banjo and also doesn’t share the s inlay style as seen in the Bacon ad in the next picture below. Bacon serial numbers seem to be a bit hazy on the history front.

I can easily buy that, having worked on a few Paramounts and Orpheums for customers with very similar features. I bought this banjo from an acquaintance of mine yesterday and managed to get it fixed up and ready to go for today. I also replaced a missing neck brace and replaced the original bridge stowed in the case with a slightly taller modern one. I must say, though, I’m quite blown away with the excellent tone and playability of this instrument.

I very rarely have older Bacons through the shop and they always please me when I do. This one is nice and fancy as well as having it where it counts!
