The late 1930s top tension flathead model 18, with maple woods and engraved gold metal parts was Gibson’s successor to the Granada model. This banjo has its original skin head and the custom upgrade ebony bridge with ivory cap. Showing no signs of ever having been disassembled, it was carefully played by the original owner and has been stored ever since. There is very little plating wear and no dings to speak of. The case redline Geib hardshell case is in the same super clean condition. Curtis McPeake pronounced this instrument as “Probably the best one in existence”.
