c. 1917 RM Anderson Orpheum Columbine 5 String Used
Nice Columbine-theme curly maple neck on an original Orpheum shell that's probably from the late 'teens. North Carolina-based Bob Anderson is known for the artistry of his inlay and engraving, and this banjo is a fine example. Looks like Anderson replated most of the original Orpheum metal parts, and as a result while this banjo has a vintage vibe it's fresh and clean throughout. A great looking, and great sounding, open-back banjo.
