This is the second of a pair of identical custom Gibson Scruggs Standard banjo's I owned. The other recently sold, which was the one that I lightly played but kept in the closet most of the time.

This one, it's twin, never came out of the case... I bought it because I'm as much an appreciator of beautiful work as I am an admirer of banjos. I'm selling because I just don't see myself using it, I've gotten away from playing over the past couple years, and honestly, because I know someone else can use this banjo the way it was meant to be.

This one is an unplayed 2010 Gibson Earl Scruggs Standard, with custom made neck by First Quality with an amazing, lightly colored rosewood fretboard. All other parts original Gibson.

Spiked at 7, 9, 10. Since it's not been played, and I bought it new factory direct (via the Mandolin Store), there's nothing about this banjo that shows use.

The pictures don't do justice to the absolutely incredibly beautiful Curly Maple with sunburst finish... the neck has amazing tiger striping and since it's been in the case, there's not even a hairline scratch anywhere to be found on the finish. Blemish free and impressive wood all around.

Nickel does show some slight tarnishing, however from sitting in the case over time, not from use... wipes sparkling clean with a bit of semichrome polish or even windex.

Keith D Tuners installed on 2nd, 3d strings.

A closet banjo, needs to be played to develop the true sound this one undoubtedly can produce.

Selling as I've gotten away from banjo in the past couple years, and I still have a couple more in the closet... as a result, interested in a sale only, no trades.

Original "The Gibson" Case included - see pictures, there are a couple minor scrapes on the edges - but they are cosmetic only and could be cleaned or re-colored to make the case appear new.

Appreciate your looking and ask any questions you have. Email me for additional photos. I can be reached at 910-554-9436 - if I don't answer, leave a message - I'll call back, usually after 7pm M-F EST.
