I bought a neat banjo the other day and have not seen any others yet with the same color. I checked out some of the older threads about them and wanted to share. It sounds great and is light weight. The serial # dates it to 91’. Pick on!

What kind of wood is the banjo?

The original RB-1's usually have a fiddle-shaped peghead. But this is a re-issue not a reproduction

@John, looks like maple to me

@Bob, correct. I believe a 29’ RB-1 has the coke bottle shape. Either way, this is a 90’s reissue with the double cut headstock. Sounds great!
