1997 Gibson Earl Scruggs Golden Deluxe Description
This is a curly maple banjo with a 3 ply hard rock maple rim. The hardware is gold and is basically Granada hardware. The engraving on the tension hoop and armrest are Granada style but the tailpiece says Deluxe. The neck is also curly maple and the fretboard is ebony. The fretboard has a Hearts and Flowers inlay pattern with one extra inlay at the first fret. There is white binding on each side of the neck and resonator. The headstock has the Gibson logo inlaid along with the Hearts and Flowers headstock inlay. The armrest is a one piece gold engraved armrest. The tailpiece is a Gold Engraved Presto. This is all original and includes an original Gibson hardshell case.
The banjo is in overall great shape. The finish is clean and really looks fantastic. The neck and fretboard are also clean. In fact the finish looks incredible. The neck had a 5th string capo which was removed and there are now two very small screw holes on the side of the neck. They are almost not visible. The hardware is in great shape with limited wear. The hardware does show some light wear but it is limited. Overall the gold looks incredible. The frets are super clean with only minimal wear on the first few frets. There are spikes at the 7th and 10th frets. It looks like there was once spikes at the 8th, 9th and 12th frets that were removed. There are now some small holes at those positions. The banjo is in overall good condition and has a very clean hardshell case.
This has a new frosted Huber Head. The banjo has a 5/8 Snuffy Smith Bridge and new Huber Truetone strings. This has proper intonation and comfortable action. All Banjos are set up here at the Banjo Warehouse and can be adjusted to your specifications. The head is set to 90 on a drum dial all the way around. This is a fantastic playing and sounding banjo.
