For Sale: FOR SALE: 2001 Gibson Earl Scruggs Standard - Excellent+ condition, second owner
2001 Gibson Earl Scruggs Standard - 5 string banjo.
I am the second owner of this lightly played EES serial # 4224. All original including the case. ( I removed the shroud - unstiched - which will be included ) I purchased this banjo two years ago from Mass Street Music in Lawrence KS who had it on consignment from the original owner whom I was able to contact. He said he tried to learn how to play late in life, and worked at it for about 2 years, then put it in the closet! It absolutely smelled like a new instrument when I opened it and still does! ( his and mine are non smoking homes ) It originally came from Janet Davis Music ( original invoice will come with it ) There are no dings, scratches ( buckle or otherwise ) metal 99% perfect. The second fret has some wear but not ready for attention yet. The original head with Earl Scruggs' signature ( Janet requested he do a few for her ) will be included. It was brittle and would not come up well to play so I put on a Stew Mac thicker coated one recommended to me. It has Kristen Scott Bensonís signature - just named IBMA banjo player of the year 2019!
This banjo is what you expect from Gibson made the the height of their production before the flood and closing of that shop. Tone is great - it has the Kulesh ring. I am selling this because I have another Gibson model I love and it is silly to try and play two banjos LOL.
