Description

The Earl Scruggs Standard is a copy of the banjo played by Earl Scruggs.  Earl played a Granada with nickel hardware and an ebony fretboard with a Hearts and Flowers inlay.  That is what this banjo is.  These are the most popular model for Gibson Banjo (at least the best selling).

This has a 3 ply hard rock maple shell with a curly maple neck and resonator.  The fretboard is ebony.  The hardware is nickel and all original including a Gibson USA one piece flange and a Gibson USA Kulesh Tone Ring.  The banjo is all original and is in really good shape.  This also includes an original hardshell case.

These Scruggs Banjos have a sound that only a Scruggs Banjo has.  These are loud and bright and clear and really bring home the authentic bluegrass banjo tone.

Condition

The banjo is in good shape and has been professionally cleaned at our shop.  I want to mention first there is some minor nicking on the back of the neck and headstock which is pictured.  There also is a spot of finish cracking by the first string tuner on the face of the headstock.  The banjo is in overall really good shape but the neck and headstock do have a few marks.

The banjo has been disassembled and all of the hardware has been buffed with a high powered buffer to a nice shine.  The finish has been waxed to a shine as well.  The frets and fretboard are in good shape and the fretboard has been cleaned and oiled.  There are spikes at frets 7,9, and 10.  The banjo is in good shape and the original case is in good shape as well.  In fact the combination lock hasn't been set on the case which is a nice touch.

Set Up

This has been set up at the Banjo Warehouse in Atlanta.  The head is a new Huber frosted head that is set to 90.  The bridge is a new Mitch .38 Special Bridge and this has new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings.  The banjo is playing great and producing strong volume and killer tone.  This banjo is a top quality and very popular design that has been set up, cleaned up and is ready to go.
