Some photos of my PB150. A rare Gibson - only 52 ever shipped between 1950 and ‘57

When you have it playable please post some sound files.

Was it difficult getting it shipped ?

It hasn’t been shipped yet, Leslie. It’s still in S Africa. I hope to make a trip to the USA when this Corona thing has resolved itself and ship my entire collection over. There is no market here at all for vintage banjos, particularly bluegrass. I’ll post a list of what I have in another thread to see who’s interested

Unfortunately the next owner will need to get it playing. I’m sure it’s a candidate for an RB250 conversation. The rim is in great shape and so is the hardware. But not for me, I have too many banjos that need to go to proper homes

Are the bushings for the Kluson tuners missing? Those can be tough to locate. They’re pretty big.

They’re in the case compartment, fortunately. Don’t want to lose them while the banjo is unstrung
