Description

The Earl Scruggs Standard is a copy of a banjo that was played by Earl Scruggs.  This is a Granada but with nickel hardware and an ebony fretboard that has Hearts and Flowers.  The most desired of the Scruggs Standard Banjos are the Greg Rich era and the best of those are from the late 1980's.  This is one of the best.

This has a 3 ply hard rock maple shel.  The neck and resonator are both flamed maple.  The fretboard is ebony with a Hearts and Flowers inlay pattern.  There is an extra inlay at the first fret.  The hardware is nickel and this is all original.  The tone ring is a very early Kulesh Tone ring that has an AFP stamp.  The Kulesh rings with the AFP stamp are the most desirable and also considered the best.  This has a one piece Gibson USA Flange, a one piece armrest and a Presto Tailpiece.

There is w/b/w binding on each side of the neck and resonator.  This also has original Gibson Keith D tuners with Gibson stamped in the tuner and the button.  The late 1980's Gibson Banjos tended to have a bit more orange and red in the finish and this has that finish.

This is also hand signed by Earl Scruggs on the label inside of the resonator.  That is a very nice touch and this also is the Blue signature which is a bit more desirable.

This is an exceptional banjo that is also rare and in great shape.  This is the top of the line for Scruggs Standard Banjos.  The banjo also includes a Gibson Hardshell Case.

Condition

We professionally clean almost every banjo that comes through our shop.  This has been disassembled and all of the hardware has been buffed with a high powered buffer.  The wood has been waxed and the fretboard oiled.  This looks incredible. There wasn't much wear to begin with but now it glows.  The neck and fretboard are definitely in overall really good shape.  There is a spot on the back of the neck behind the 2nd fret which I have a picture of.  It looks like some of the finish was rubbed off and touched up.  There are spikes in the 7th and 9th frets.  This is a truly gorgeous banjo and the hardshell case is also in gorgeous condition.

Set Up

We also professionally set up every banjo that comes through our shop.  This has a new Remo frosted head which is set to 90 on a drum dial.  The bridge is a Snuffy Smith Bridge with JD Crowe spacing and that is set with correct intonation.  The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the action is set nicely.  This is also fully adjustable.  This plays like butter and sounds like a beautiful cannon.

This is a fantastic model that was made during the best era for these.  This is all original and has been cleaned and set up to look, play and sound its best.  This banjo is going to thrill some lucky player!
