Here's a project I've been working on for some time. This banjo is built around the configuration of Earl Scruggs' banjo at the famous live recording at Carnegie Hall. Although every detail is not replicated, the main parts are. The resonator and rim are from a 1929 TB-3 F.O.N 9259-65. The rim was cut by Arthur Hatfield to accommodate a 50's Gibson Doehler 1-piece flange and a genuine gold plated Gibson "Crowe" 20-hole tone ring. There's a hole in the rim directly under the armrest where a mute was installed at some point of it's tenor configuration. The tension hoop/hooks/ and nuts are also Gibson from that era. The tailpiece is a very nice Prewar Grover Presto. As a special touch I added an "Earl Scruggs Special" abalone truss rod cover that is genuine Gibson from the factory. The neck is a new roasted mahogany from Eric Sullivan. I've had many of these roasted necks and they are extremely responsive. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask. 5th string spikes are installed and it ships in a new Superior case. Thanks for looking! I’d be interested in a trade involving another Gibson, or Yates, Huber or a “Mastertone” type banjo.
