I am not sure why this got the model title Custom as opposed to Golden Deluxe but whatever the case may be this is the one and only Gibson Earl Scruggs Custom that has made it’s way into our shop. This also is in time capsule near mint to mint condition which is exceptional.
This has a 3 ply hard rock maple shell with a gorgeous curly maple neck and resonator. The fretboard is ebony with a Hearts and Flowers inlay. The hardware is gold and near mint with engraving that matches the Golden Deluxe pattern. The only difference between this pattern and the Granada pattern is the tailpiece is engraved Deluxe as opposed to Granada. This is marked as a Custom on the label inside. Finally the neck and resonator each have w/b/w binding which is gorgeous. This banjo shows basically zero evidence of having been touched at all and is a very special design. This also includes an original Gibson Hardshell Case.
This is truly pristine, to the point that I did almost no cleaning on this banjo because it did not need it.
The gold looks fantastic, it is truly glowing and it shows basically zero evidence of being touched at all. There is a hint of tarnish on the tongue on the tailpiece but that is about all the wear. I waxed the finish to give it some more shine and cleaned and oiled the fretboard. The frets are nearly perfect and there are spikes at frets 7, 8, 9 and 10. This banjo is stunning all over and the original case is also clean.
This has been set up at the Banjo Warehouse. The head is a Remo frosted head which I believe is original and is set to 90. The bridge is a Snuffy Smith bridge and the strings are new Huber Truetone .10’s. This is a powerful banjo with lots of tone and is set up for maximum performance. Plus this is a rare model that is basically mint.
