The Stelling Gospel was only made up until the early 1980’s. Most of the Gospels that have been made had an ebonall fretboard which this does not. In addition the resonators on most of the early Gospels were thin and this has a thick resonator which became the standard for Stelling Banjos. This sat under someone’s bed since the 1980’s also so it is basically a time capsule as well.
This is all original with original block rim. The neck and resonator are both walnut and are both gorgeous. The fretboard is ebony and has beautiful inlay work all the way to the headstock. The headstock features a large Cross inlaid and the back of the resonator has a wood cross inlaid as well. This is truly a work of art and is a fantastic example of fine work by Geoff Stelling.
The hardware is nickel and all original. The armrest is an original Stelling armrest and is beautiful.
Geoff Stelling is retiring from building banjos which has caused his banjos to become very difficult to find as well. The case is the original case and this has the original warranty card as well.
This is in stellar condition. This banjo was so clean I didn’t take it apart to detail it. The metal is gorgeous and really shines. The wood is in fantastic condition and I have waxed all of that to a nice shine. The fretboard and frets are nearly perfect and the board has been oiled. This is a 9.5/10 all the way around with a case that is in great shape and a clean warranty card.
This has been set up at the Banjo Warehouse. The head is the original Stelling Head and is set to 90. The bridge is a new Huber and the intonation is set. The original Stelling Bridge is included and is in the case pocket. The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and this is set up as a stellar player as well.
This is a rare version of a model that was only made until the early 1980’s. The ebony fretboard along with style of resonator makes this a very special Gospel.
