1908 A.C. Fairbanks Electric NO 0.
In ancient Greek mythology, Prometheus stole fire from Zeus and gave it to the mortals. In her 1818 world classic, Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus, Mary Shelley's ill-fated title character brought the spark of life to his famously grotesque but well-spoken monster. In 2018, SFI's Andy FitzGibbon resurrected this Electric NO 0. The second life of this beautiful instrument brings with it an invisible repair of a broken peghead ear, new peghead overlay and backstrap, new ebony fretboard with the original engraved inlays, and new cobra hooks with ball end nuts. It has also been outfitted with new ABM tuners, and a Schaller 5th, with the banjo's original grained ivoroid knobs installed. Full, powerful, tone that doesn't break up when played hard. 27" string length, 10-15/16" rim. Why pay extra to have something relic'd when you can just go right to the source? We're not saying Mr. FitzGibbon likes to play God or anything, but sometimes he gets this look in his eyes . . . The instrument is in good plus condition and includes a hard case.
