My friend Mike Armistead in Nashville let me know he is putting his two Greg Rich custom made Gibsons up for sale. He's not even a banjo player, they've basically sat in their cases in his house since the early 1990s. He's not a member of BHO, so he can't list them here. I'm just going to let you know if you have any interest go to his Facebook page "Michael Armistead" and you'll find him.
Here's what they look like, all made well in advance of Gibson making the the RB-5 available again as part of the Centennial series. The gold RB 4 could also be called a walnut Granada, in fact the tailpiece is engraved Granada.
I have no part in the sale. But I can vouch for Mike. Good man, for a hillbilly guitar picker.

The gold RB 4/Walnut Granada is sold now I'm told.
My friend has put the RB 5 on BHO Classifieds if anyone is interested.
I'm not involved in the sale, just advising him on the benefits of using BHO Classifieds.
