This has been one of my personal banjos I have played regularly for last couple years with my band and used to demonstrate my skirtless tone ring concept.
I have just completed and RB75 “Bryant” banjo with the skirtless ring in it and I no longer need the RB150 as I am about “banjer poor”these days.

This is a great sounding example of what the skirtless tone ring coupled with a prewar rim can deliver.

Early 1950s original RB150 Gibson neck….frets and fingerboard in great shape.

Truss rod cover is not original to neck but that was what it had on it when I purchased neck so I left it intact.

Neck is profiled like all early 50s necks were….nice playing and feeling neck

1928 TB1 prewar rim cut for 1 pc RK flange…Gibson sticker and serial number in rim. Fitted with my "Bryant" skirtless 20 hole flathead tonering weighs right at 3lbs........ring sits on top of rim totally and allows for rim swelling an contracting with no effect on tone ring as relating to choking out banjo with too tight fit.

Steve Gill prewar style mahogany resonator with matching sunburst finish to neck

Set of Gotoh tuners…..I reshaped buttons to tulip bowtie shape to match original 5th string button.

5th peg button is original button from RB150 friction peg

Mcpeake pot metal tension hoop (which by the way is not available anymore)

Sullivan roasted maple bridge

Very clean good condition pre EPA head

RK presto tailpiece
