Banjo For Sale
1920's Paramount B
Melody Banjo

Rare  and Collectible
 VG example 
Paramount Style B Melody Banjo with its 15 1/4” scale neck that meets the body half-way between the 12th and 13th fret.
 Created so that mandolin players could play parts previously played on banjo, and vise versa.  
The head stock has the inlaid mother-of-pearl Paramount logo, underneath which is inlaid “Wm. L. Lange” and “Style B”.
This example sports an even more delicate MOP on the fingerboard than the catalog model
All of the metal parts are shiny  including the original “improved” Paramount quick release tailpiece and Page  Figure 8 tuners. The action is extremely playable, and the tone of this unique instrument is as one would expect from a Paramount: crisp, clean and with plenty of volume.
Vintage calfskin head, Fresh Setup GDAE
OSSC in fair condition, latches all work
