A. C. Fairbanks "Electric" 5-string banjo, S/N 2011, Circa 1892

This is an early, high-grade, Fairbanks "Electric" banjo with a nicely carved heel and stunningly beautiful engraved inlays on the peghead and fingerboard.  Carved heel Fairbanks banjos, like other Boston makes from same period, are pretty rare, and this example is in wonderful condition.
