We can't seem to find any info on this fine old banjo, other than the make, model, and serial number...However, we were told it belonged to Earl Scruggs at one time. It's a Gibson Custom Master- Tone, five-string banjo, s\n: 963685. According to Gibson's records, it was made between the years 1970, 71, or 72. It appears to be set up in the same manner as many of Earl's other banjos...i.e., "railroad spike", "Scruggs Tuners"...etc. Any assistance in helping us identify the year,and previous ownership (if it was Earl's or not)is greatly appreciated!
Thanks a bunch ya'll! Rick and Jack
