Bacon Orchestra No. 2 Special 5-string banjo Circa 1920, S/N 5716

Like my Bacon "Professional Special Grand Concert", this is another Bacon offering undoubtedly made by Lange after Bacon set up his own manufacturing plant in Groton, CT.  The tone ring is similar to the "FF" tone ring, but without the internal resonator.  These are high quality banjos, and they play and sound just as good as they look.
