Description

The JD Crowe Blackjack is an RB75 that has copper flashing on the hardware along with Granada style engraving. The copper flashing creates a type of bang that only this banjo produces and it is very desirable for that reason.

The shell is a 3 ply hard rock maple shell. The hardware is nickel with copper flashing. The neck and resonator are mahogany and this has a rosewood fretboard. The fretboard has special inlay that is only found on this banjo.

The original neck for this broke and someone found another original Gibson JD Crowe Blackjack neck. The neck that is on this banjo did not leave the factory on this banjo but I want to emphasize it is an original Gibson Blackjack neck. This also has a couple new thumbscrews, one gold and one nickel. This has the original engraved Crowe Tone Ring and this also has the original Gibson Case. The case has the original paperwork which is a nice plus.

These do not come up for sale often because people usually don't want to sell them. This is a fantastic banjo that is going to make someone extremely happy!!

Condition

This banjo is in really good shape which is a big deal. The copper is notorious for wearing off and this has a really nice and thick coat of copper. The wood also looks great and is really clean. This has a clean neck and fretboard and even the frets look great. This has no spikes or 5th string capo which probably explains why the frets are so clean. This is a gorgeous instrument with a clean original case.

Set Up

We professionally set up every Banjo that comes through our shop. This has a new Remo frosted head which is set to 90 on a drum dial. The bridge is a Sullivan bridge which is a high quality bridge. The banjo is set with correct intonation. The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the action is set well. This has loads of volume and pop and also is a great player.

This is a special and rare banjo that has been cleaned and set up to look, play and sound its best.

Biography[edit]

Crowe began playing the banjo early on and was offered a job with Jimmy Martin's Sunny Mountain Boys in 1954.[1] He recorded with Jimmy Martin between 1956 and 1960.[2] In 1961, Crowe formed the Kentucky Mountain Boys, principally performing in the Lexington region.[3]

In 1971,[4] Crowe changed the band's name to The New South and included material from rock and country music sources. Crowe's New South band is widely considered one of the most influential bluegrass groups since the 1970s.

Kentucky Educational Television in 2008 aired a biography of James Dee Crowe, A Kentucky Treasure: The James Dee Crowe Story, produced by H. Russell Farmer.[5]

Crowe received the Bluegrass Star Award, presented by the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation of Dallas, Texas, on October 15, 2011. The award is bestowed upon bluegrass artists who do an exemplary job of advancing traditional bluegrass music and bringing it to new audiences while preserving its character and heritage.[6]
