This 1928 Gibson Granada is the classic Pre War Granada.  This is one of the most iconic banjos in the history of banjo.  This banjo will deliver a loud and clean tone that will turn heads.  If you are looking for the authentic bluegrass sound this banjo is for you!!!



This is a maple banjo with Gold Hardware.   This is all original except for the neck and thumb screws.  The neck is a Sullivan neck.  The neck is maple with a rosewood fretboard.  The fretboard features a Hearts and Flowers inlay pattern.  Classic 2 piece flange Granada with a Sullivan neck.


The banjo has wear but is overall clean for how old it is.  You can see finish scratching in the resonator.  The hardware also shows age.  There are a few small holes drilled into the shell and tone ring because people used to put lights into these banjos.  However they are tiny and a lot of people would never notice them.  This is an old banjo but has no functional issues and is in overall good condition. 

The neck is in great shape and the frets show basically  no wear and there are no spikes installed either.  This is definitely a pre war banjo with mojo but is also definitely in good shape even with the age and wear.

Sound and Playability
