For Sale: "Gibson" Maple Custom Sloan Ring w/Video FREE SHIPPING
Here's a project I've been working on for a while and It's turned out tremendous. Using some of the best parts on the market and a prewar Gibson resonator, this banjo is extremely responsive with great tone and volume. All of the fitting and finish were done by Robin Smith. The neck is a straight grain maple neck from First Quality who made necks for Gibson in the first place. The neck has Gotoh tuners. The pot consists of a new Jerry Sloan 20-hole tone ring from his latest batch and it is setting on top of a Sullivan Factory Floor block rim. These rims are some of the best available today. The hardware is all new Prucha nickel plated. The resonator is a prewar, double bound, 4-lug Style 1 with the original wall lugs. The neck has 5th string spikes at 7th and 9th frets. The banjo ships in a new Superior case and the SHIPPING IS FREE!
