This is a "Folk Ranger" 5 string banjo with signatures. It is in good playable condition. This particular instrument has a couple things that help it's worth. One is the sliding capo on the fifth string, which only some have. The other is a unique headstock. Most of these have VEGA, enameled. This one has VEGA in abalone shell, along with a star in shell. It is like one Pete Seeger had. It is a bit unusual in that respect. Signed by Laura Smith and Ken Pearlman. The tuners are nice but not original.
