This is a curly maple banjo with gold hardware. The gold hardware is engraved all over. This is a beautiful banjo with lots of work. The neck is also curly maple and is a speed neck. There is checkerboard style binding on each side of the neck and resonator as well as white binding. The tuners are all gold with really nice buttons. The tuning keys are also engraved. The armrest is a one piece armrest with 2 attachments to the pot and engraved with Gibson and other engraving. The tailpiece is a clam shell style tailpiece that is also engraved. The tone ring is gold and is also engraved. The fretboard is ebony with a custom Hearts and Flowers inlay pattern. This is all original except for the speed neck and includes an original hardshell case.
The banjo is definitely in overall great shape but there is some signs of use and age. First of all this has a speed neck so the finish has been taken off of the back of the neck. This helps for faster playing on the neck. The fretboard also has some grooves from lots of fretting. I am talking about the fretboard itself. There is also some fretwear. The first few frets show the most but none of it is so serious it effects the function. There is no buzzing. The gold definitely looks fantastic. This really has clean metal. The armrest has worn off some of the gold but some is still there. There are spikes at the 7th and 9th frets. This is a really attractive banjo with some signs of use and age that sounds and plays incredibly well and will turn heads.
This has been set up here at the shop. The banjo has great string height (action) and feels great to play. The head has been set to 90 on a drum dial all the way around the head. The banjo has proper intonation. This has a New Huber Frosted Head and new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings. This has a Snuffy Smith bridge with an ebony cap. This is a great looking, playing and sounding banjo that will make any banjo player happy. BUY ONLINE OR CALL TODAY 404-372-5482!
