C. 2007 Gibson RB/Earl Scruggs 49 Classic Conversion

Photo for Ad 140929


Case: Gibson hardshell case

This banjo started as an RB Standard before being converted to its present Earl Scruggs ’49 Classic configuration by Clancy Mullins of Tennessee. Clancy built the mahogany neck and inlayed it with the infamous "bowtie" pattern that the factory installed in Earl’s Granada when it was sent back to Gibson in the late ’40’s. Clancy also added a Gibson tone ring to the Standard pot, re-skinned the resonator in maple, and installed D-tuners. The result is a great-sounding bluegrass banjo that is still in like-new condition. Includes the original hardshell case.
