I am offering a Gibson-Masterton RB-250 banjo purchased in 2019 as a first-time buyer

Gibson's most popular 5-string banjo of the post-war era was produced from the mid-1950s until 2010. In particular, the RB-250's flat-head tone ring creates the unmistakable pre-war sound for bluegrass music. (It may be interesting to note that Gibson no longer makes banjos since a fire at their factory in 2010).

Neck and resonator: Mahogany, white binding,
20-hole flat-head tone ring
Compensated Grover bridge, (original Gibson bridge is also available)
bound fingerboard with elegant bowtie inlays,
one-piece flange

Geared tuners
Spike nails on the 7th and 9th frets
Serial no. 250 08 75
Condition: excellent.

Minor signs of use only on the head (10/21 replaced) and on the three upper frets. This does not affect the excellent playability in the slightest. I use medium gauge d'addario strings. The tuning holds up surprisingly well compared to other banjos.

Regular care and careful storage under controlled room climate conditions were a matter of course.
Shipped free of charge with original Gibson OHSC.

Some accessories to get started right away are available as required.
