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 this has VEGA by itself, enameled. This one has VEGA in shell, alone with a star in shell. It is what one of Pete Seeger's had. It is a bit unusual in that respect. Signed by Laura Smith and Ken Pearlman. The tuners are nice but not original.
