Very early (earliest recorded serial number at the time of posting) Weymann 1500 tenor banjo. This was the highest model made which eventually became the Orchestra Style No. 2 soon after when the Orchestra line was launched.
This banjo features the Weymann Megaphonic rim and pop off resonator made of maple. It has an ebony fingerboard with side binding and red/green/red lamintations under the binding and peghead and backstrap. It has ebony inlay on the top and bottom of the rim, and rosewood binding on the rim and resonator.
We did the following work to this banjo: replaced a few frets and leveled, crowned, and polished those needing it, oiled the fingerboard, fabricated new resonator attachment hardward replicating original Weymann parts, new strings, head, and bridge, installed new planetary tuners, installed a new armrest, cleaned all parts. There is an old and stable repair to a peghead break. There is some finish wear and imperfections.
