This has a 3 ply hard rock maple shell with a curly maple neck and resonator. The fretboard is rosewood and this has a Hearts and Flowers inlay pattern. The banjo has gold hardware that is all original including an original Gibson Sullivan tone ring and an original Gibson USA one piece flange. The hardware is engraved with the Granada pattern. The neck and resonator each have w/b/w binding on each side and the tuners are original Gibson Tuners. Finally this has a very rare Gibson USA hardshell case that is tan with pink interior.
This banjo is oozing with tone and is LOUD. Any Rich era Granada will deliver a sound that only a Rich era Granada can deliver, but especially the Granadas from the 1980’s.
This banjo is in fantastic condition and has been professionally cleaned at the Banjo Warehouse. The banjo has been disassembled and all of the gold has been cleaned. We waxed the finish which has caused all of this banjo to really glow. The fretboard has been cleaned and oiled as well.
The gold on this is in remarkable condition with only a bit of wear on the armrest. The frets and fretboard are also in near perfect shape. There is a tiny mark on the back of the neck that is probably from a capo. That mark and the minimal wear on the armrest is about the full extent of the wear on this banjo. There is also some light checking in the resonator which is normal for Rich era finish. The case is also in fantastic condition but the combination lock is not working. The case is clean on the inside and out and all of the latches and hinges are strong and functional.
This has been set up at the Banjo Warehouse. The head is a new Huber frosted head which is set to 90. The bridge is a Snuffy Smith Bridge and the intonation is set. This has new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the banjo is set up with great action. This is a joy to play with lots of volume.
Rich era Granadas have gotten very difficult to find but especially in this kind of condition. This banjo is cleaned up, set up and ready to go!!
