About this item
An original 1964 toy ‘Beatles Banjo’ manufactured by Mastro Industries, New York, USA. The gold and brown plastic banjo has four plastic strings and four plastic pegs with caricature headshots and facsimile signatures of The Beatles printed on the banjo body skin in red and blue. The words ‘Mastro Banjo’ are printed on the head. It measures approximately 57cm (22.5 inches) in length. There is a small knot at the base of one of the strings and a crack to the upper left of the front body rim. The black plastic on the reverse of the banjo body has wear and scuffing from use. The condition is a strong very good.
The banjo comes in an original 1960s cardboard Mastro banjo box with carry handle. This is a generic Mastro banjo box, not the box which the banjo originally came in. The box is printed with a red & cream design on both sides and the Mastro logo and company address on each end. It measures 59cm x 24cm x 9cm (23.25 inches x 9.5 inches x 3.5 inches). There is some wear to the edges and a 3.75cm (1.5 inch) tear to one of the ends. A piece of masking tape is attached on one side near to the top edge and there is a light patch of water staining. The box is incredibly sturdy, it has held its shape and the colours are still vibrant. The condition is a strong very good.
