❌SOLD❌  Gibson Earl Scruggs Standard Mastertone Banjo, 2001

Built from 1994 until a devastating flood hit Nashville in 2010, the Gibson Earl Scruggs Standard banjo reproduced the classic banjo that used by Scruggs. At first, the model was just named ‘Earl Scruggs’. The word ‘Standard’ was added in 1992, because two newer Scruggs models were introduced for the 1992 year, the ’49 Classic and the Golden Deluxe. Gibson Banjos,  including the Gibson Earl Scruggs Standard Mastertone Banjo,  are no longer available.

❌SOLD❌ Deering Golden Era 5-String Banjo, 2004

The Deering Golden Era 5-String Banjo draws from the heritage of traditional bluegrass banjos, and delivers the tone and look of the classic instruments. Built during 2004 at the Deering shop in Spring Valley, California, this Golden Era is in good condition and has been cleaned and set up at The Twelfth Fret by Anne Hartman. We’ve replaced the head and installed a Presto tailpiece. The dark stain shaded finish really sets off the flame Maple used for the resonator and neck.
