Bacon Style B Chicago Princess 11" Tenor Resonator Banjo 1925 w/Hard Case
Handcrafted in Groton, Connecticut in 1925, this remarkably gently aged Bacon Style B Chicago Princess Tenor Resonator Banjo was sold exclusively through CMI (Chicago Musical Instruments), branded for the Midwest market.
The confident, familiar feel of a 17-fret white maple neck with low, even action across the fingerboard and articulate, balanced tone of an 11" maple rim with removable metal resonator and original-spec Rogers head ensures this Bacon is still more than session-ready, bringing a healthy helping of vintage appeal to any live or studio set.
Notes: This 1925 Bacon Style B Chicago Princess 11" Tenor Resonator Banjo is in Excellent condition, part of a single-owner, climate controlled collection, with extremely light wear (pictured) consistent with age and occasional home use. Tuners professionally replaced at some point in this banjo's life with Grover planetary tuners, originals not included. Rogers head appears to be original, per 1925 Bacon catalog. Bridge non-original. Includes original fitted hard case, missing handle (pictured).
All instruments from Music Makers are professionally evaluated and set-up in our historic Galesburg, IL. storefront prior to shipping.
