There have been many banjos made in tribute to the Gibson Granada that Earl Scruggs played through the years. Very early on Earl's banjo underwent changes of hardware and subsequent neck changes that slightly changed the tone of his banjo yet it was still the "Earl sound". Arguably the most popular sound of Earl's banjo was in the 1960's when it had a mahogany neck. In specific, the live recording of Flatt and Scruggs at Carnegie Hall Dec. 1962 especially demonstrates this sound.
The Yates Carnegie is the closest tribute to the look and sound of Earl's banjo in the 60's that I've seen. No detail has been overlooked. Warren made the cam-tuners, the deep-sitting curly maple resonator, distressed gold plated tone ring, distressed nickel hardware, mahogany neck, ebony fret board, inlays etc. to produce a tremendous banjo that has look, feel, and tone of the "Carnegie Hall sound". This Carnegie is the first one made with serial number CA-1.
The banjo is in near mint condition with almost zero fret wear. 5th string spikes are installed at 7, 8, and 9th frets. It ships in a top-of-the-line TKL hard case
