This “banjola” originated in the 1940s as a tenor banjo and was acquired by Kevin Breit in 2002 until 2015. It has made serveral appearances on Kevin’s discs as well as the Grammy-Award winning Norah Jones disc Feels Like Home, and the Gold-Award Serena Ryder’s If Your Memory Serves You Well disc. It’s tuned in fifths like a tenor guitar (CGDA – low to high) but can be tuned any way. Provenance included. E-mail if you have questions or wish to purchase this item.
