These fine banjos were available from the well known George Gruhn, Tut Taylor, and Randy Wood back in the 70's. These banjo's were "top notch" banjos during that era. This banjo has just been totally gone through by Robin Smith with a new neck-to-pot fitting which was needed. These mahogany banjos were patterned after the prewar Gibson 2-pc flange design. This banjo has the full thickness rim and flathead tone ring along with hearts and flowers inlay, chrome hardware, new head, and strings. The banjo ships in a black hard case. There were only a few hundred of these made so they are becoming rare...especially in this condition.
