I'm searching for information such as specs and price on a Sullivan LS-75. I'm having trouble finding much info at all. Thanks in advance!
The Sullivan Banjo website is a little sparse. You could PM Eric Sullivan, he is a member here. He is very good about responding to questions from BHO members. Look under More on the left side of the page. Type in his name under Member Search. His user name is esullivan.

Sorry you are having trouble getting some specs on our banjos but Culloden is right, our website does not say very much about the banjos we build every day.
Our Legend series banjos have had a name change and are now called the American Classic series. These banjos utilize classic inlay patterns from the past while using component and technology from today.
Specs on the “LS-75” now AC-75 are as follows.
Neck. We use either straight grain maple or mahogany and style 75 inlays is an ebony head veneer and a East Indian rosewood fingerboard. Pressed in nickel silver frets, spikes at 7,9, and 10, white binding and a gloss lacquer finish.
Resonator. We use a poplar lined mahogany resonator with W/B/W concentric rings wrapped in white binding. Gloss lacquer finish
Pot Assembly. Nicke hardware, 1pc flange, Sullivan Professional flathead tone ring, three ply red maple rim, Remo head, 5/8 Sullivan roasted bridge, and D’addario J60+ strings.
Banjo is shipped in a black hard shell case.
Current price is $2995.00 plus shipping
I currently have 2 of this model going through the shop right now.
If you have any questions please just send me an email at email@example.com
Eric, would the specs for the AC-75 also apply for the LS-75? Thanks!!
Yes sir. They sure do.
If the question is regarding the one in the classifieds, it is a block rim and says V35 ring. It should be a good sounding banjo.
