For sale is a copy of a Gibson RB-18 built by Robin Smith in 2001. Robin built the neck and resonator for a customers prewar TB-18 but when that person sold the banjo he had Robin put them on one of his pot assemblies. This banjo has a Huber vintage tonering. The inside of the resonator is also scooped, so it’s not quite as heavy as a standard top tension banjo.

This banjo will come with gold plated Waverly tuning pegs with amber buttons (I forgot to put them back on before taking pictures so it is pictured with nickel Gotoh tuners.) The prucha armrest, tailpiece and coordinator rods are nickel plated.

I have replaced the nickel tuners with the gold waverly’s with amber buttons, the nickel tailpiece with a gold presto and have put the trussrod cover back on the banjo. Pictures have been updated to show this.

$4000 obo with hardshell case
