Description

This is the first recorded Gibson RB3 that came with a Flying Eagle inlay during the Rich era.  There were a handful of Flying Eagle RB3 banjos that were made before this (in the Rich era) but they were not on the official records.  This also is signed by Doug Hutcheons and Greg Rich on the inside of the pot.

This has a 3 ply hard rock maple shell.  The resonator and neck and mahogany and this has nickel hardware.  The fretboard is rosewood with a Flying Eagle inlay pattern.  There is white binding on each side of the neck and resonator.  The banjo is all original and has a Gibson USA flange.  The armrest is a one piece armrest and this has a Presto Tailpiece.  This has got a lot of bang and a lot of power and is a stellar example of an RB3 generally.  The fact this is such an early Rich era really takes this over the top.

This also has an original Gibson USA hardshell case which is rare.  This is a smoking hot package and is set up to sound and play like a dream.

Condition

This has been professionally cleaned at the Banjo Warehouse.  We disassembled the banjo and buffed all of the metal and waxed the wood.  This has a really nice glow to it.  The hardware basically looks new.  The neck and resonator also look fantastic with a nice shine.  The fretboard is clean and oiled and the frets are in really good shape all the way down the board.  There are spikes at the 7th and 9th frets.  This is not only a very special banjo it has been professionally cleaned and also well taken care of.  The case is also clean.

Set Up

This also has bee professionally set up at the Banjo Warehouse.  This has a new frosted Remo Head that has been set to 90 on a drum dial.  The bridge is a new Huber bridge and this has correct intonation.  The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the action is set nicely.  Plus this is fully adustable with the working truss rod and dual coordinator rods.  This is a wonderful banjo that would thrill any player no matter there experience.  Check out Banjo Warehouse for all sorts of interesting used banjos for sale.
