This is an insanely well worked banjo from the 1970’s and is part of a very limited run. This has carving, engraving, painting, purfling and gold all over and this will catch anybody’s attention. The All American originally was a Pre War Banjo so this is a reissue that was done by Gibson in the 1970’s.
This has a very thick maple shell with purfling on the inside and outside of the shell plus the shell is finished. The neck and resonator are both maple and both feature some pretty extreme carving and painting. There is also purfling on each side of the neck and resonator along with binding. The fretboard is pearloid and has some American scenes painted including the Statue of Liberty and some battle scenes. The headstock is an extreme carving of a bald eagle with an American Flag.
All of the hardware is original and gold and engraved. This includes a 2 piece flange and a full size 20 hole tone ring. The engraving is unique and gorgeous. The armrest is the original gold plated clamshell and is also engraved. All of the tuners are engraved. This banjo has almost no space that doesn’t feature some kind of custom work.
What is really exceptional about this is the banjo is in Near Mint condition. This is a stunning work of art that has been very well preserved. This is all original and includes an original hardshell case.
This banjo is Near Mint. The only wear on this is some gold on the armrest has come off but not much. Other then that the rest of the gold looks new. There was also a 5th string capo which was taken off which left a few screw holes exposed on the side of the neck. The rest of the banjo is perfect. The wood all looks incredible and even the frets are perfect. This was clearly bought as a piece to preserve and not play and Thank God for that. The original case is also in nearly perfect condition.
This has been set up at the Banjo Warehouse in Atlanta. The head is set to 90 and the Snuffy Smith bridge is set with correct intonation. The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the action is perfect. This banjo sounds and plays just as good as it looks!!!!
