Bacon “Professional FF-3” 5-string banjo S/N 6041, Circa 1920

Bacon continued to market the "Professional" line, with their elegant internal resonators, after they set up their own manufacturing company in Groton, CT and started making a completely different line of banjos.  The "Professional" banjos at that time were actually made by Lange.  The FF-3 is a lovely playing banjo, and like all Bacon Professionals, it sounds terrific.
