Super Clean 1962 Gibson RB 250, Bow Tie, flat head banjo. This banjo is in excellent condition with a few small blemishes here and there. This banjo has truly exceptional tone with a strong bassy 4th sting yet rings like a bell up the neck and down. I believe the banjo to be all original except upgraded planetary tuners, Remo head and Scorpion Bridge. This banjo has the desirable, full thickness rim. The action is low and easy to play with no buzzing. There a few small places on the resonator where the finish has flaked off. Of course, the finish on the resonator back has some checking as is expected. I see no wood damage anywhere. I believe the hardware is nickel plated. At some point someone filled holes on the headstock from cam tuners. I owned this banjo for a year before I ever noticed it because it is almost invisible unless you catch in just the right light. I am only selling this banjo to raise some cash for another project. It comes in an original Lifton case that is like new on the inside but shows some travel on the outside. All latches and hinges are excellent. It will be carefully packed and insured. I own a business, not related to music, so I can take a credit card over the phone if needed. These Bow Ties just keeping getting more and more popular and I can already tell I'll regret selling it. A bargain at $2900
