Rich and Taylor Sonny Osborne
Greg Rich and Mark Taylor joined forces in the early 1990’s to build the best pre-war Gibson inspired bluegrass banjos the world had seen since, well, before WWII. Greg was responsible for reinvigorating Banjo design and quality at Gibson in the late 1980’s, and Mark Taylor — Tut Taylor’s son, was charging ahead building excellent instruments under his ‘Tennessee” brand. The two formed the Rich and Taylor Banjos in 1993, and the instruments bearing this brand are among the most highly acclaimed banjos built during the last 75 years.
It features a TN-20 hole tone ring for a bassy and warm Scruggs-Crowe sound, gold hardware with engraved arm rest, beautifully figured maple speed neck with bound rosewood fingerboard with Hearts and Flowers inlaid, a bound figured maple resonator with hand-stained sunburst, Five-Star tuners with ivoroid buttons, and a presto tailpiece. There is a pearloid block with a Sonny Osborne Signature and the label is hand signed on the inside by Sonny Osborne as well.
The instrument is set up well and plays cleanly up the neck. It’s a particularly lovely sounding 5 string, and has a rather nice feeling neck carve. The finish and inlays are gorgeous, too. This is an all star banjo that was made by a company that made some of the finest pre war banjos that have ever been made.
