This is an exceptional banjo. Premium curly maple with WBW multi-binding. New pot assembly with a Sullivan Vintage 35 Ring on a Tony Pass ThinSkirt Timeless Timber Birch Rim. RR spikes on 7,8 & 9. Note: spikes face outward not inward, which work good with the Crowe string spacing. Yet as nice as it looks, it’s all about the sound. The V-35/Tony Pass combo produces tremendous volume with a wonderful 4th and 3rd string along with bell-like tones going up the neck. This is an outstanding value for the money. Comes with new Hard Shell Case.
To give you a history, Earl Scruggs had a number of Gibson banjos, but one of the more famous was an old Gibson Mastertone that had the fretboard replaced by Gibson with the classic Bowtie inlay pattern for him. Gold Star issued a commemorative "1952" Flame Maple RB-4 style banjo with this classic Bowtie inlay and AAA Flame maple throughout, as part of an initial 2009 run of only 12 built for all of North America. I got a " model 1952" neck that I have used as the foundation for creating a great sounding banjo.
