Description

This starts off with an authentic 1970's Gibson RB250 shell.  That is the only part on this that is actually Gibson.  The flange is a one piece nickel flange in fact all of the hardware is nickel.  The tone ring is a 20 hole nickel plated tone ring which is really nice.  This banjo does have some good sound.  The armrest is a two piece armest and this has a Presto tailpiece.

The neck and resonator are made out of really nice flamed maple.  There is some green in the wood and that is not finish.  That green is a sign that the wood is really high quality.  This banjo definitely has some nice touches.

There also is a set of classic D tuners already installed.  The fretboard is rosewood with dots and there is white binding on each side of the neck and resonator.  Finally the headstock has a Gibson logo but this is not a Gibson Banjo.

If you want a quality banjo for under $2000 this would be a really good option.  This also includes a vintage Superior Hardshell Case.

Condition

We professionally cleaned this banjo at the Banjo Warehouse.  We disassembled the banjo and buffed all of the metal with a high powered buffer.  The wood has been waxed and the fretboard has been oiled.  This banjo was already in good shape but now it glows.  The neck is in great shape.  The fretboard has some scratching on several fret spaces but it's not too bad.  The frets are in overall good shape but there is some wear on the first few.  The binding on the neck has some sort of wear which I'm not sure what that is.  Overall the banjo looks really good.  The case is pretty worn but it is strong functionally.

Set Up

We also professionally set up this banjo at the Banjo Warehouse.  This has a new Remo frosted head which is set to 90 on a drum dial.  The bridge is set with correct intonation.  The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the action is set nicely.  This also is adjustable.  This is a quality banjo made with some good parts that has been cleaned and set up to look, play and sound its best.
