This is professional grade banjo in every respect with LOTS of power in the bass range, subtle mid range, and sparkling highs. It is idential to the Earl Scruggs Limited Edition Flint Hill Special advertised new for over $10,000,
assuming you can still get one. For a better description, please go to:
The Good news: Shipping within CUSA is included.
The Bad news: There are no 5th string spikes on the banjo and PayPal users must split fee with me.
Check out the above web address and you'll see that this is a great buy on one of the MOST highly decorated Gibson banjos ever made.
Thank you for looking and please let me know if you have any questions.
BTW....I'll have this banjo with me at Galax this coming weekend. Let me know if you'd like to see it.
