This Lange-built Bacon Professional FF Special features a 10-7/8”internal resonator rim, with wave soundholes, intricate marquetry, 24 brackets, and original Rogers skin head. The 5 string neck features a bound pearwood fretboard with intricate sea snail inlays and an engraved flowerpot on the headstock. The scale is 27-1/8”, and the nut width is 1-5/16”. The original frets play cleanly despite a bit of back-bow in the neck. We have the banjo set up with Aquila Nylgut strings, a ½” bridge and an action of 5/32” at the 12th fret, which frails nicely.

The banjo is in excellent condition and is original but for newer inlays on the back of the headstock and on the heel-cap.

Grained ivoroid ‘Forest Dale, VT’ plate, Bacon Professional, FF, and Special all stamped on to the neck stick. No serial number.

With modern hardshell case
