1960 Gibson RB-250 flathead Mastertone banjo #0-8405-15. Very good condition with only minor playwear on the resonator and a divit in the peghead.
Features include mahogany neck and resonator; laminated mahogany resonator; 2 concentric rings on resonator; 1-pc flange; Bow-tie fingerboard inlay; bound Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard; "Mastertone" block before last fret; bound center-dip peghead with crown inlay and "Gibson" logo in pearl. Original tuners and tailpiece are included in the original. The banjo has a 20-hole flathead ring that may have been added later. Banjo has been upgraded with 2-band tuners, "Gibson" clamshell tailpiece and "drilled-through-the-peghead" cam tuners. This is a powerful, solid sounding Mastertone with one of the early postwar tone rings that are in high demand. The banjo is in great shape ready for another 6 decades of music. If you like the "twisty thing," these cam tuners let you milk it for all it is worth. More photos available upon request via email. $3595 includes delivery to continental US and shared costs to other destination.
