I recently got a 5-string banjo.It says "Conqueror" on the headstock in pearl,looks kinda old but still in good shape,has 22 frets, it has 30 brackets,it's light brown flange with a split down the middle,and theres like an upside down heart, on the tailpiece.I have no idea how much it's worth so,if anybody could tell me anything (anything!) about it I'd appreciate it

Conqueror banjo

I bought a Conqueror brand new in 1969 and I still have it. Everyone prior to my note has pretty much described what it's all about. I remember paying $140.00 for it back then. It came with a paperboard case .. it's taken a lot of travel and pickin' ..one of my sons borrowed it from a couple of years ago to learn to play. I just got it back ... the only thing I've always thought was a bit irritating about it is the 5th string peg. If I keep it much longer (I bought a Gibson Ode in 1975 and still have it) I might be a geared peg in it and change to a fiber head and use it for a folky sound. Never was sorry I bought it.

I don't know anything about it but I ran across a Conqueror 4 string banjo that a friend was left by his mother. It also has quite a bit of pearl in it. Has nice butterflied wood on the back. Pretty good shape but needs strings. I too would like to hear from anyone who knows anything about the Conqueror banjos.

Re: Conqueror Banjo

I have a Conqueror as well. Got it used back in 1979 as a rental with option to buy, which I did. I would also be interested in any information regarding this banjo. Thanks.
