A good friend of mine is looking to sell his trusty 1999 Gibson RB-250. I saw this banjo recently and it is a really good one. Very warm sounding and plays like a dream. The banjo is currently equipped with a Tony Pass Lost Timbre rim but the original rim is included with the sale. The banjo is in nice shape but has been played a lot. The plating on the armrest is worn through and the tailpiece cover is missing, but I will include a new armrest and a presto tailpiece cover should the buyer want them. The banjo also includes a Fishman pickup, but that can be removed easily.
This banjo was used to record the Old School Freight Train records. It’s a really good one.
