Description
 
We have on consignment a used Stelling Staghorn serial # 6189 in like new condition with a pristine Stelling hard-shell case.

In 1975, Alan Munde and the Country Gazette band introduced the Stelling banjo to an international audience by playing the second Staghorn ever made. Since then, the Staghorn has remained one of the most desired banjos in the world and has become the trademark model of Stelling Banjo Works.  The increasing rarity of the materials, such as the highly-figured Claro walnut used in the neck and resonator, and the colorful abalone shell inlays and trim, make this model one of the ultimate sound investments.

All Stelling models feature the Tony Pass 600TS Old Wood rim. This wood has been lying on the bottom of Lake Superior and other bodies of water for over 100 years and could have been hundreds of years old when it was cut down. After a special kiln drying process, this wood is in better than new condition (acoustically speaking) because of the age of the wood combined with the microbiological action to which it was subjected for so many years. It's been said that Stradivarius took advantage of the same process for his violin wood, but for a much shorter time (perhaps only a few years). This rim, installed in a Stelling banjo, is awesome. It's been compared to prewar banjos in such a superior way for tone and volume that it is now standard on all new Stelling banjos.

Note: Our banjos are individually inspected, set up and tuned by the Banjo.com staff in Georgia. We are banjo players, so we set them up the way we want to play them! Each banjo is in tune when we carefully pack it for shipment. Climate conditions and travel will affect the tuning, so it may need to be fine-tuned before playing.
