(Used) Iida 229 5-String Resonator Banjo

This Iida 229 is in very good condition. This banjo has been kept in a case virtually un-played. There are a couple scuffs on the resonator and the fretboard could use a bit of conditioning. Since the 1950's, Iida Gakki was a manufacturer based in Nagoya, Japan and made instruments for a variety of manufacturers such as Ibanez, etc. As is typical of Iida banjos the entire pot and tone ring are made entirely out of one piece of aluminum. This greatly reduces the weight of the banjo, and it makes this Iida much tougher for traveling around through different climates/weather conditions. The neck and resonator is mahogany. This banjo sounds great and would be a great beginner to intermediate level banjo. Send us a mess
