I will likely regret this...but here's your chance to grab a remarkably fine banjo at a great price.

This is a 2019 Yates RB-1 featuring a thermal aged rim, gorgeous curly maple neck, re-purposed prewar Gibson 11" brass hoop, new Remo head, recent fret leveling and crowing by Don Bryant, Rickard cyclone tuners and a red lined TKL case.

This has been my main hanjo for well over a year and l it has never let me down whether I'm playing bluegrass, old time finger style or straight ahead clawhammer. I've owned an original 1932 RB-1 and an original 1931 RB-2 and this banjo stood out above both with the exact same setup.

Has some light marks on the headstock edge and resonator from handling. Here's Warren Yates' writeup from his website on these

And here's a video of this very banjo being played fresh off of the bench in 2019

And here's the banjo in action playing for dancers

Will ship quickly and safely.


United States, Floyd, VA, 24091
