This is a 1987 Granada. This is one of the first Banjos made during the Greg Rich era and is definitely a nice find. This banjo has an all original pot but the neck is a newer Frank Neat. This banjo definitely sings and is in great shape and ready to go.
This has a curly maple neck and resonator. The fretboard is rosewood with a Hearts and Flowers inlay. The hardware is gold and engraved and all original. This includes an AFP Kulesh Tone ring which is serial number 13. The engraving on the hardware is all in the Granada pattern and all of the hardware is Greg Rich era Gibson hardware.
Even with the newer neck this banjo is very special and includes a very rare early original Gibson hardshell case.
The banjo is in excellent condition. The gold looks great and not much is worn off. There are some hints of use and wear but the gold definitely is in good shape. We waxed all of the finish and the finish looks great. It has a nice shine. There is some marking on the back of the headstock probably from D tuners but that is also minor. The frets and fretboard are in great shape and the board has been cleaned and oiled. There are spikes at frets 7 and 9. The banjo is definitely in fantastic shape and the original case is also in really good condition.
This has been set up at the Banjo Warehouse. The head is a new Huber frosted head and is set to 90. The bridge is a Yates and this has new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings. The banjo is definitely loud and this has the Greg Rich Gibson Tone.
There is something special about the most early Rich era banjos. There was a spirit in the factory of excellence and this banjo captures that spirit. This is a very rare and special banjo that is set up and ready to go!
