Gibson RB-75 in excellent+ condition. This banjo was purchased new from First Quality Music Supply and was one of the last batch of new RB-75s sold. JD Crowe hand signed the resonator at FQMS as part of the last batch of '75s made. Currently set up with GHS PF-140 (JD Crowe Set - .095/.011/.012/.020JD/.095) and a Gary Sosebee bridge. Waverly V2 tuners with ivoroid buttons. Orignal Gibson hardshell case with shroud and plastic guard still in the combination lock.
This is one of the best Crowe models I've played and was hand picked by the folks at FQMS as an exceptional example. The sound is dry, yet full with good note separation. Excellent volume too. The action is very comfortable and is slightly under 1/8" at the 12th fret with a 5/8" bridge and the coordinator rods completely neutral. Spikes at frets 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12. The banjo is set up and ready to play.
$2600.00 plus shipping. Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional photos. You're more than welcome to try this banjo in person prior to buying if you wish to make the drive to central NC.
