This was originally a tenor banjo and was made in April of 1993. Greg Rich left Gibson at the beginning of 1993, I believe March so this is right after Greg left Gibson. This package includes the original tenor neck which is in great shape along with a clean original Gibson USA Case and Warranty. This is a fantastic banjo for a lefty and it is very rare for a lefty Gibson Granada to appear, even as a conversion such as this.
This has a 3 ply hard rock maple shell with a curly maple neck and resonator. The neck and resonator each have w/b/w binding on each side. The 5 string fretboard is rosewood with a Hearts and Flowers inlay. The Tenor neck also has a rosewood fretboard but with Flying Eagle. The hardware is gold and all original including a Gibson USA One Piece Flange and a Gibson USA Kulesh Tone ring. The gold is engraved with the Granada Pattern and is very clean.
This has all the original parts, the only new part is the 5 string neck made by Frank Neat. The tuners are from the Tenor. This is in fantastic shape and really a great find for a Lefty!!!
This is in fantastic condition and has been professionally cleaned at the Banjo Warehouse. This has been disassembled and all of the hardware has been cleaned and looks fantastic. There is a bit of wear on the armrest and a very small amount of wear on the flange but the flange wear is not serious at all. Really the armrest wear isn’t either but the gold has worn a bit more on the armrest. The finish has all been waxed on the 5 string neck and resonator and looks great. There is a hint of wear in the finish on the side of the neck by the 2nd fret but that is also light. The fretboard has been cleaned and oiled and the board is in really good shape. The first few frets on the 5 string neck do show a bit of wear but not much. The rest of the frets are perfect. There are spikes at frets 7,8,9 and 10. The 5 string case has a bit of wear on the outside but not much, the inside is clean and the case is strong. The Gibson case is near perfect. This is definitely a package that is in really good condition and it is cleaned up and ready to go.
This has been set up at our shop. The head is a new Remo frosted head and has been set to 90. The bridge is set with correct intonation. The strings are new Huber and the banjo is a fantastic player. This banjo is absolutely gorgeous and has been set up to play and sound fantastic. This could be a dream come true for a Lefty and Lefty Banjos like this are very very rare.
