GTR 5 String Resonator Banjo with HSC
The GTR stands for George Gruhn, Tut Taylor, and Randy Wood who are prominent figures in the Bluegrass instrument world. GTRs were made in Asia by Lida from about 1974 to 1978. They have been called a Masterclone in that they essentially were reproductions of the Gibson Mastertone. The GTR has been considered a very high-quality imported banjo whose playing characteristics and sound competed successfully with Gibson's of the time. See the Discussion Forum on Banjo Hangout, 2/02/2011.
This particular GTR like all others, has a dark mahogany neck with wreath pattern inlay. It has a sunburst finish, a 20 hole flat head, a clamshell tail piece, two coordinator rods, and chrome hardware. The head is clear. The scale length is 26.5" with a nut width of 1 1/4". It has 5 geared tuners.
The banjo and case are in excellent condition. The case does have one extremely small rough area on one of the back edges.
I bought this banjo a number of years ago, thinking I would learn to play the 5-string banjo and never did.
