Wildwood Troubador Openback 5-String Banjo

Wildwood Troubador Openback 5-String Banjo

The Wildwood Troubador Openback 5-String Banjo is the flagship model for the Wildwood Frailing and Clawhammer traditional banjo line. Clawhammer and Frailing are traditional banjo styles making a significant comeback. Not only are players exploring older traditional and historic repertoire, but new modern music is being created regularly outside of the old-time and bluegrass contexts. The banjo can work extremely well with a voice an an expressive device.

Gibson RB-18 Mastertone Top Tension 5-String Banjo Sunburst, 1996

Gibson RB-18 Mastertone Top Tension 5-String Banjo Sunburst, 1996

Here we’re looking at a wonderfully preserved Gibson RB-18 Mastertone ‘Top Tension’ 5-string banjo, with its gold plating unworn and the finish lightly checked from age. From the serial number, it appears to have been produced during June of 1996. The number breaks down as ‘RB’ for Regular Banjo – i.e. 5-string – ’18’ for the style, followed by two digits for the year (96) and two for the month (06). The last group of digits, a single number 7 in this case, is the production number for that model in that date period.

SOLD! Deering Long Neck Deluxe Open Back Banjo, 1988

SOLD!  Deering Long Neck Deluxe Open Back Banjo, 1988

As an example of form following function, the long neck banjo was a Pete Seeger creation designed to extend available keys using just a capo. Placing the capo at the third fret, the long neck functions as a ‘normal’ 5-string banjo in G, but without the capo it drops down to E.

SOLD!!! Eastman E20D-SB Dreadnought Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2005

SOLD!!! Eastman E20D-SB Dreadnought Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2005

The Eastman E20D is the less decorated cousin to the Eastman E40D we posted recently, but even without the decorations it’s an impressive and classy guitar.
This example was built at the Eastman plant in China during 2005 and has been both played in and well looked after. It’s set up for bluegrass use, meaning that the action is a little higher for spirited playing, competing with other percussively loud instruments like banjos and mandolins.
