Vintage 1935 Gibson Tb-x Tenor Banjo W/case **rare**:
You are offerding on a Vintage 1935 Gibson TB-X Tenor Banjo with Slingerland Case. This banjo has no model number, serial number, or factory order number on it. This instrument has been verified by numerous sources.
There is very little information on the model. From the information gathered, there were only 40 TB-X banjos produced between 1935-1936 and in 1936 they went to a resonator with a sunburst back. There were many variations on this model as far as headstock, inlay, etc.
This particular model has an 11" head, 20 frets, dot inlays, and a radius fingerboard.
The condition on this model is overall good. Typical Weather Checking and Players Wear (pictured). Typical pitting on hardware (pictured). Crack in the wood resonator in the neck pocket (Pictured). Separation in wood hoop in resonator (pictured).

Finish and Wood Grain Wood is a product of nature and will have some variances from guitar to guitar. Like fingerprints, no two guitars are alike; even if they are the same model and finish. Wood has unique features such as grain variance, knots, flaming, quilting, darker and lighter grain color, etc. Cracks in the wood are defects, variances in the visual aspects of the wood are not.
