A fine banjo attributed to master luthier John Greven, who began his career at Gruhn Guitars in the 1960s and now builds high end guitars. The 27" scale maple neck features a fantastic heel carving, fancy pearl inlay on the ebony fretboard and peghead overlay (flower pots, cherubs), and a "gryphon" in pearl on the backstrap. The 10-15/16" rim assembly is most likely original, although the internal veneer is newer, has been rebound, and exterior wood has newer finish; original scalloped Electric tonering. Equipped with a No Knot reproduction tailpiece.
