Each banjo we supply is individually set up in our on-site Specialist Workshop here at Eagle Music. Any banjo purchased from Eagle will be fully SET UP, checked for intonation and playability and tuned ready for playing straight out of the box!
The JLS “Special #12” Tone Ring is a replica of the Gibson tone rings used in the Granada models in the 1930’s. The maker, Jim Stull of San Antonio, Texas, has analyzed original Gibson tone rings and duplicated the exact specifications. When electronically tested for pitch, sustain, and ring, it equals the original. It also has a slightly longer “skirt” which (1) provides more contact with the wood rim and (2) provides direct contact with the heel of the neck for optimized tone.
