EXCELLENT CONDITION Gibson RB-3 Copy
This is just an amazing banjo. The mahogany neck and resonator were made by Steve Gill; the neck has a slightly wider finger board and is very comfortable to play; the rosewood finger board has standard style 3 Leaves and Bows inlays; spikes at 7,8,9,10; pre-war style resonator with W/B/W binding and dual W/B/W concentric rings in the back of the resonator; a rare Elkins maple 3 ply rim; Yates un-plated V33 No Hole flat head tone ring (and yes, it has that no hole rumble!); nickle plated Prucha metal; Presto tail piece; Waverly V2 tuners on 1 thru 4; Gotoh geared 5th string tuner; neck set and set up by Steve Huber; 5/8" Huber bridge; TKL hard shell case in excellent condition.
If you are looking for a banjo that can be heard in a jam session, and that can cut through in a full band setting without bearing down on it- then this banjo will do just that! But if you decide you want to give it all you got, it's going to respond and still have more in reserve. I am selling this and other banjos to fund a pre-war conversion project. If not for that, I would definitely keep this banjo- it's that good.
Thanks for looking!
