❌SOLD❌ Stelling Golden Cross Gospel Banjo, 1978

❌SOLD❌ Stelling Golden Cross Gospel Banjo, 1978

Here we have a Stelling Golden Cross Gospel banjo, built of Black Walnut during 1978 in Afton, Virginia with a raised, rather than inlaid, rear cross. One other Gospel model like this is known to have been built for Ralph Stanley with the serial number 428.  The current Golden Cross models do not have the rear cross.  The Stelling Golden Cross Gospel is based closely on the stock Golden Cross, with the primary difference being the headstock inlays.

⚌Reduced‼ Paramount Style B 5 String Banjo Maple, 1922

⚌Reduced‼  Paramount Style B 5 String Banjo Maple, 1922

The Paramount Style B 5 string is built using Maple for the bulk of the wooden components, with a bound Brazilian Rosewood bridge and headplate. The classic, fairly complex inlay set is executed in engraved Mother of Pearl. There is natural wear and checking to the lacquer finish, and there is some damage to parts of the headstock inlays from previous re-gluing work, along with some cracks in the Brazilian Rosewood head plate – this is to be expected on an instrument nearly a century old.
