2003 Gibson RB-75
I'm putting my GIbson parts RB-75 up for sale. This is a killer banjo! It consists of an RB-250 pot with a Gibson-Crowe ring added and an older Randy Wood neck with late style '75 inlays. The Randy Wood neck is made of very old, dense mahogany and the fingerboard is Brazilian Rosewood of a quality that you just can't find anymore. The neck is obviously patterned after a pre-war down to the profile, which is a wonderful D shape - not too thick and not too thin. I find it to be quite fast and easy to play. The action is right at 7/64" at the 12th fret and this banjo is set up with GHS Crowe Stage strings (.010/.011/.012/.020JD/.010).
There is one small repaired ding in the resonator sidewall and some minor play wear, otherwise this banjo is in great shape. Spikes at frets 7-10. TKL Professional hard shell case. Cheat-a-Keys and strap in pictures not included. I will include the Cheat-a-Keys for an extra $65.00 if desired.
This has been my main jamming banjo and I've also played it on stage several times this year. It cuts very, very well in a large jam and also cuts a mic well too. The sound is warm, deep and full with excellent volume. I've received numerous positive comments on the sound.
Here are some of the highlights:
* 2003 Gibson RB-250 rim, flange, hoop, hooks, etc.
* Gibson-Crowe RB-75 tone ring
* Randy Wood mahogany neck with Brazilian rosewood fingerboard and late Style 75 inlays.
* Waverly Tuners with ivoroid buttons.
* Great condition.
* Set up with a .5/8" Cumberland Acoustics "The Gibson" bridge (it sounded the best out of 7-8 that I tried).
* Comfortable neck profile.
* Great action and feel. Very comfortable to play. Action is 7/64" at 12th fret with 5/8" bridge.
* TKL Professional Hard Shell Case.
