1928 Gibson Pre War Granada 5 string Banjo
This is a superb 1928 Pre War Granada with the original neck, case and tone ring. This has been inspected and set up here at the Banjo Warehouse.
This is a pre war 2 piece flange Granada. The neck is a Clancy Mullins and the tone ring is a Hopkins. The hardware on the pot is all original except for the wall lugs in the resonator. This also includes the original neck, case and archtop tone ring. The archtop tone ring is a very special pre war tone ring and a very nice bonus to this package.
The banjo is a curly maple banjo with a 3 ply hard rock maple shell. The hardware is gold and engraved. The neck is also curly maple with a rosewood fretboard. The tuners have mismatched buttons but that is not a big deal. The fretboard has a Hearts and Flowers inlay pattern. There is white binding on each side of the neck and resonator. There is also checkerboard binding on each side of the neck. The armrest is a 2 piece armrest and the tailpiece is an original clam shell tailpiece. This is a true cannon and an excellent example of a Pre War Gibson Banjo. This also includes a nice hardshell case which I believe is a newer Gibson case.
The banjo is definitely in great shape. The original finish looks really good with minimal wear. The hardware has some patina but the gold is still there and looks really good. The neck finish is also very clean. The fretboard is clean with minimal fretwear. There is no functional issue caused by the fretwear. The resonator has slightly separated from the binding on a small spot on the side. This is minor and does not create any issues. This also seems stable. There are spikes at the 7th-9th frets. This is definitely a really attractive vintage banjo with only minimal signs of use. The case is in good shape with some wear on the outside.
This has been set up here at the shop. This has nice string height (action0 which is adjustable. The banjo has correct intonation. The head is set to 90 on a drum dial all the way around the head. This has a clean frosted Remo Head. The bridge is a Huber Bridge. This also has new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings. This looks great, sounds great and is a professional player. This is a great chance to get a pre war Granada. This has all the tone you want and is a fantastic price for a Pre War Granada.
