Description

This was the signature model for Earl Scruggs in the 1960's and is a cool banjo.

This has a thick multiply maple shell with a maple neck and resonator.  The fretboard is ebony and has the classic Vega inlay.  The banjo has all original nickel hardware including the tone ring designed for this banjo.  There is white binding on each side of the neck and resonator which has yellowed a bit.  In fact all of the finish has a nice patina.  The headstock has Grover tuners along with the classic D tuners once used by Earl Scruggs and others.  The truss rod cover says Earl Scruggs Model and is original.  Finally this has a nice Superior Hardshell Case. This has a brass nut which I am not sure if that is original or not but everything else is other than a 5th string capo.

These banjos don't come up for sale often and it's super cool this banjo was hand signed by Earl.  This is definitely a classic and collectable banjo.

Condition

This banjo has the vintage look but the condition itself is really good.  The finish does have a patina but the finish is clean on the resonator with little evidence of use.  There is a lot of checking in the resonator.  The finish on the back of the neck has worn off on a section near the top from playing.  The fretboard is in great shape with super clean frets.  This has a 5th string capo already added.  The banjo definitely has a vintage vibe but it is absolutely in good shape.  The case is clean.

Set Up

This has been professionally set up at the Banjo Warehouse in Atlanta Georgia.  This has a new Huber frosted head by Remo which is set to 90 on a drum dial.  The bridge is a Sosebee bridge which is set with correct intonation.  The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the action is nice and adjustable.

This is a classic and hard to find banjo that is ready to go with the nice touch of Earl Scruggs autograph.
