This banjo was not given to Little Roy by Gibson. He bought it from a man at a festival in the late 1960’s. The man also sold to Little Roy, Wallace Lewis’ famous 1968 Martin D-45 at the same time. As I recall, Little Roy said he paid around $1,600 for the two instruments. These prices are unheard of these days for these instruments. Little Roy played this RB-800 for me about a year ago. I think it was made in 1964. It is extremely loud and stands up to any Granada ever built. The gold hardware has faded significantly, but otherwise this banjo is a gem. I have always loved this banjo the most of any of his banjos. It was on numerous album covers, and I think it’s the best banjo I have ever heard.
