Description

Stelling Banjos are regarded as one of the best if not the best Banjo that has ever been built.  Geoff Stelling is the owner of Stelling Banjos and he is now getting advanced in age.  This has caused Stelling Banjos to almost disappear from the market and they are really hard to find.  This is a Sunflower which is a very popular model and this is all original and an incredible banjo.

This has a Cooperman shell with all original Stelling nickel hardware.  This includes a one piece flange and a no hole tone ring.  The neck and resonator are both curly maple each with great flame and the fretboard is ebony.  The fretboard has gorgeous custom Sunflower inlay along with the face of the headstock.  The word Stelling is engraved on the tailpiece, armrest, flange, tension hoop and each of the tuners.  There is w/b/w binding on each side of the neck and resonator as well.

This banjo has a GORGEOUS tone.  These materials were the same type of materials on the Scruggs Banjo and putting Curly Maple, Nickel and ebony together produce a unique tone that everybody loves.  This is all original and includes a Gibson Hardshell Case.

Condition

This banjo is in gorgeous condition and has been professionally cleaned.  The only spot with noticeable wear is on the back of the resonator.  The veneer on the resonator has some surface cracking in the top right corner.  The rest of the banjo is almost spotless.

We buffed all of the hardware to make it glow along with shined the finish.  The fretboard is clean with some fretwear but the fretwear does not cause any issues at all.  There is no buzzing or playing problems.  There are spikes at the 7th-10th frets.  The Gibson Case is in good shape with only light wear on the outside.

Set Up

This has been professionally set up at the Banjo Warehouse.  This has the original Stelling frosted head which is set to 90 on a drum dial.  The bridge is a Stelling Bridge and is set with correct intonation.  The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and this plays great!  This also is adjustable with 2 coordinator rods and a truss rod.

The Gibson case is a really nice addition to this because original Gibson cases have gotten expensive.  The case alone is worth a few hundred dollars.

Stelling Banjos have gotten HARD to find and this is a fantastic example of a popular model for the Stelling Banjo Company.
