Geoff Stelling is regarded as one of the Greatest Banjo Builders in history. He was inducted into the American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame last year and is retiring from building this year. This has caused his banjos to become nearly impossible to find and we are digging through the entire planet to find any Stelling Banjos at all. This is a great way to get the Stelling sound for a price that compared to where these are heading is cheap.
This has the original Stelling shell with a maple neck and resonator. This has a brown stain on the wood which is factory original, some of the White Star Banjos are blonde. The fretboard is ebony with snowflakes. This has w/b/w binding on the neck and resonator. All of the hardware is nickel and original including a Stelling One Piece Ribbon Flange and a Stelling No Hole Tone Ring. The armrest is engraved Stelling and this also has the original Stelling head. This banjo is gorgeous and includes a clean TKL hardshell case.
This has been professionally cleaned at the Banjo Warehouse in Atlanta and is gorgeous. I want to mention there is a repair on the neck under the neck heel which is a professional quality repair. The neck broke at some point and that has been fixed. Other then that the banjo is in marvelous shape.
The hardware has all been disassembled and buffed to a nice shine. There is some light button scratching on the back of the resonator but not much. The finish has been waxed and also shines. We cleaned the fretboard and oiled it and the frets and fretboard look fantastic. There are spikes at frets 7,8,9 and 10. This banjo looks incredible and the TKL case is super clean as well.
This has been set up at the Banjo Warehouse. The head is the original Stelling frosted head and this is set to 90. There is a Scorpion Bridge on this banjo and the intonation is set. The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and this is set up for smooth and fast playing. This is a phenomenal machine that plays like butter and delivers some major power. Stelling has a sound that only Stelling has and this banjo delivers that powerful tone.
