Rich and Taylor stands for Greg Rich and Mark Taylor and this is the company that Greg Rich went to after he left Gibson. Rich and Taylor may be the most underrated brand of bluegrass banjo and these are superior to Gibson Banjos made at the same time. This is the Sonny Osborne model which is rare to begin with but now that Sonny Osborne has passed away this is becoming a highly sought after banjo.
This has a 3 ply hard rock maple shell with a curly maple neck and resonator. The fretboard is rosewood with a Flying Eagle inlay pattern. The hardware is nickel and all original and includes a one piece flange and Tennessee 20 nickel plated 20 hole tone ring. The armrest is a one piece amrest and this has a Presto tailpiece. This banjo really pops and has a lot of bang and that Tennessee 20 tone ring went through a dramatic period of research to duplicate an original Pre War Ring to the best of modern day abilities. This also includes the original Rich and Taylor paperwork and has a very clean Superior Hardshell Case.
This is in fantastic shape and has been professionally cleaned at our shop. The only wear which is noticeable is on the back of the resonator next to the binding and is pictured. My guess is that was leaning against a wall and that mark ended up there. Other then that (which is minor), the banjo is stunning.
We disassembled the banjo and buffed all of the metal with a high powered buffing wheel to a shine. The finish has been waxed and shines as well. The fretboard has been cleaned and oiled and the frets are in great shape with spikes at frets 7 and 9. This is definitely clean, as is the paperwork and hardshell case.
This has been set up at the Banjo Warehouse in Atlanta. This has a new Remo frosted head which is set to 90. The bridge is a Snuffy Smith bridge and this has new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings. This banjo is loud with phenomenal tone and this is a stellar player. These Sonny Osborne banjos were already hard to find but now that he has passed people are snatching these up at every chance.
