1998 Gibson RB4 5 string Banjo Immaculate

Description

This is absolutely gorgeous.  The first thing I want to say is this has never had spikes or a 5th string capo.  The significance of that is this couldn't have been played much because any serious player would require some kind of 5th string capo.

This has a burled walnut resonator with some really nice burl in the walnut.  The shell is a 3 ply hard rock maple shell.  This has nickel hardware.  The neck is also walnut and this has a rosewood fretboard.  The fretboard has a Flying Eagle inlay pattern.  There is w/b/w binding on each side of the neck and resonator which has slightly yellowed.  There is also inlay on the face of the headstock including the Gibson logo.  This is very clean and all original and includes a Kulesh Tone ring.  There is also a Gibson USA flange, an original one piece armrest and a Presto Tailpiece.

The RB4 has a haunting sound with the walnut, almost a dark tone.  There is something very very special about an RB4 and there are some people that go crazy over the tone.  This also has a clean original Gibson Hardshell Case and the original Gibson Warranty Paperwork.  The 1990's were in my opinion the best decade for Gibson Banjos since World War 2 and this is a fantastic example of a banjo from that period.

Condition

Like I said this is immaculate.  This is almost untouched.

The wood and finish look incredible.  The burl in the walnut really shows because this is so clean.  The hardware looks new.  The neck and fretboard are also clean and the frets show almost no wear.  The original case is also super clean.  This has spikes in the 7th and 9th frets.  I am kidding in no way when I say this banjo is in immaculate condition.

Set Up

This has been professionally set up here at the Banjo Warehouse.  This has the original Remo frosted head which looks new.  The head has been set to 90 on a drum dial.  This has a Snuffy Smith bridge with a rosewood cap.  The strings are brand new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings.  This is set up with comfortable action that still produces fantastic tone and a lot of volume.  The banjo also has correct intonation.  This is a serious business collector banjo because RB4's are rare but this one is almost a new old stock banjo that has a gorgeous case and even the warranty info.
