1968 Gibson RB250 Bowtie 5 string Banjo

This is an excellent condition RB250 Bowtie 5 string Banjo with a gorgeous early Bowtie inlay. This was originally installed with D tuners that have since been removed and are not with the banjo. The tuners are reissue Klusons which are better than the originals but have the original look. The original rim is included but currently this banjo is installed with a 5/8 inch Cox rim. I don’t have a picture of the original rim in this listing but if you would like to see it just ask and I will get a picture. I also want to mention I don’t know what type of tone ring this has in it but it is a professional ring. There is also a screw hole on the top of the neck heel from a strap button that is no longer there.

This is still in really good condition and there are not major signs of wear at all. This was absolutely well taken care of. The frets do show wear as you get towards the nut but there is no buzzing, this is set up to play and does not need a refret for function. There are also spikes at the 7th-11th frets. The hardware is still in really good shape in fact excellent shape especially considering the age. This is not necessarily a collector grade instrument but it is in fantastic shape and it would make a lot of collectors very happy.

We have this fully set up and it is ready to play. If you have any questions at all please ask. Thanks!!!!! CALL TODAY 404-372-5482
