Description

Robin Smith was a legendary banjo builder and luthier that passed away this year.  His work was regarded as the best by many people and his passing was absolutely a tragedy for the banjo community.  This is a banjo that was built by Robin Smith and also happens to have a vintage Kulesh tone ring.  This banjo is explosive.

This has a 3 ply hard rock maple shell.  The neck and resonator are mahogany.  This has a rosewood fretboard with a Flying Eagle inlay pattern.  There is white binding on each side of the neck and resonator and more inlay on the headstock.  This has nickel hardware and unless the tone ring was aftermarket this is all original.  The banjo has a one piece flange, a one piece armrest and an authentic Presto tailpiece.  This is a bluegrass banjo machine that is loud with a whole lot of body.

The tone ring is a very special piece of this banjo.  Richard Kulesh is regarded as making possibly the best modern Banjo tone ring which is what is in this banjo.  In the late 1980's Curtis Mcpeake who is a well known banjo trader had Richard Kulesh make a batch of rings which copied Curtis Mcpeake's prized banjo called Ole Betsy.  This is one of those tone rings.  I have sold this tone ring by itself for as much as $600 and this is a wonderful ring.  This is a big deal to this banjo and even if it was not put in here originally it would be an upgrade.

There has been a rise in interest in Robin Smith Banjos since his passing and the fact is there will be no more made.  This is a fantastic example of a powerful bluegass powerhouse cannon that would make absolutely any player happy.  This also includes a Superior Hardshell Case.

Condition

This was clean on the way in but we still professionally cleaned this banjo.  We disassembled the pot and buffed all of the metal with a high powered buffer.  This caused the metal to look new, it really shines.  The wood has been waxed as well which also brings out a nice glow in the finish.  The fretboard has been cleaned and oiled and looks great with overall clean frets.  There is a hint of wear on the first few frets but not much at all.  They were barely touched.  This is in fantastic shape and the case is also clean.

Set Up

This has been professionally set up at the Banjo Warehouse.  We put a new Remo head on the banjo which is set to 90 on a drum dial.  This has a Snuffy Smith bridge which is set with correct intonation.  The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the action is set nicely.  This is also adjustable with a truss rod and 2 coordinator rods.  This is a powerful banjo made by a legend that has been professionally cleaned and set up.  This banjo rivals banjos that cost over $5000!!!!
