Hi Folks,

For sale is my good friend and monster banjo player Ben Krakauer's old 1999 Gibson RB-250. This banjo has been played hard but is in good shape. Sometimes in the early 2000's Ben had a Tony Pass block rim installed, however, the original rim can be included with the sale. I've just cleaned up and did a full set-up of this with a new Stew-Mac Remo head and 5/8ths Sullivan bridge. This banjo has a nice warm sound but cracks when you need it to. It has a nice quick and even response as well.

You can hear this banjo here:

$2200 with the original rim included or $1900 without the original rim.

Hardshell case included, buyer pays shipping.

Whoa. That's a good one. If I wasn't trying to reduce my numbers, I would pounce.

It really is a great banjo and, likewise, if I didn’t have banjos all over the place I’d just buy this one myself. The new head is settling in great.
