1922 Gibson Kraske Rim TB Conversion
The Victor Kraske design and patent led Gibson to create the very unique hollow rim design for the first banjos they ever produced starting in 1918. The hollow 12″ rim design gives these banjos a very unique tone and timbre that you won’t find in a traditional solid rim construction. This pot with serial #11564-12 dates to 1922, and along with this superb conversion neck made by Carl Arcand.
This is one of the best sounding banjos currently in our collection with a deep, hollow sound that resonates the entire showroom. Absolutely amazing instrument.
Gig bag included.
