GRich era Gibsons are something special from this viewpoint.

Posted by banjer5 on Sunday, December 28, 2008

I just finished setting up a RB3 for a friend that was manufacturered Sept. of 1990. It is the first time I have really had a chance to get under the hood (so to speak) of these well known axes. It came to me needing some repair and with full permission of its owner. It had a lower lag screw that was loose and that was corrected first. I then put a Scorpion bridge on it and a new set of PH145 GHS strings. Then after about an hours travel I got to play it in a jam with some really good musicians. I had about as much enjoyment as I can remember in a long time with this banjo. Sparkling highs up the neck and that wonderful growl that we always look for were all at my fingertips. I am sold that these were the truley SECOND GOLDEN AGE of Gibson. I guess the fact that I am banjo poor already means I'll not be looking for another of this vintage but it was a pure delight.
