T.W. Bacon 7-String c. 1880s
Here we have a very rare English 19th century fretless 7 string made by T.W. Bacon in the circa 1880s.
The neck is made out of mahogany with an ebony fretboard and mother of pearl inlays. On the dowlstick we find the text “Manufacturer T.W. Bacon 26 Endell St London”. This banjo features geared tuning pegs and a beautiful tailpiece. The banjo is also equipped with the famous Dobson ring.
Comes without case or gig-bag.
