The Limited Edition Vintage Granada "Flying Eagle" banjo draws on the beloved and legendary pre-War Gibson Granada banjos. The Vintage Granada "Flying Eagle" was handcrafted in Nashville, Tennessee, in the now closed Gibson Showcase factory, by some of the finest banjo makers in the world. Working from the original Gibson Granada specs, the Vintage Granada features a classic Gibson flathead pot assembly and tone, with a traditional "Flying Eagle" inlay pattern. With all the beauty and aesthetics of the standard Granada , the "Vintage" Granada also offers copper-flashed hardware and an RB-75 tone ring for an extremely warm yet focused tone. The Gibson Original Limited Edition "Vintage" Granada was released in a very limited run of only 25.

This is No 23 (2009)

To make this instrument that much more versatile, 5th string spikes were added at the time of purchase at frets 7, 9, and 10 (A, B, C). A Snuffy Smith 5/8" bridge was also added by the original dealer, making the tone more lively and a bit warmer. Snuffy Smith bridges are widely recognized as one of the best upgrades you can do to any banjo.
