For sale is my 1995 Earl Scruggs Standard banjo. This was purchased used and is a great sounding banjo in great condition. There are spikes at frets 7, 9, & 10. Only selling as I have several banjos and need to lighten my collection. Open to offers within reason.

Banjo features a beautiful curly maple resonator on a 3 ply hard rock maple shell. The neck is also curly maple with an ebony fretboard. The fretboard has a Hearts and Flowers inlay pattern.

Truly a great banjo with both a sweet and powerful tone, depending on the right hand placement. I really don't want to sell it but I mainly play my prewar and this isn't getting much play time.

The banjo is in good used condition. I don't really see any flaws. The only thing I've noticed is the head-tightening nuts appear to be a little stiff and kinda squeak when tightening. Otherwise, a killer banjo,

This is a video of me when I first played it at the shop in CO.
