BANJO FOR SALE
When Salstrom Banjos closed the doors in the 1960's Phillip
Salstrom sold the tooling and designs for the Salstrom banjo
line to the FMI.
Fender used this design to compete with the Gibson
Mastertone of the era and are arguably as good or superior
to any Gibson banjo of the era.
The ones produced in Santa Ana CA are the most desirable.
