Anyone recognise this Huber RB-G?
Is being advertised on Banjobuyer.com at the moment but I feel seller has borrowed these photos from somewhere?
It has a custom engraved gold plated tone ring which I feel makes it pretty recognisable. Any feedback would be great.

With no pix or links, it’s hard to say.

Since banjobuyer and the Marketplace here tend to have the same banjos listed, I suspect it is one of these  Don't think any of them mention an engraved tone ring though.

I was under the impression that banjobuyer and BHO marketplace were actually exactly the same, just a different place to hopefully provide another option for access to folks who aren't members here?  Another chance to show up on an internet search?  Driven off the same data?  Also banjobarn.  I've never noticed any difference.

Eric A I, too, have noticed the similarities. One of the things I sometimes find different is that sometimes when you do a general search for a particular banjo, "sold" listings come up in the search, so you get a sense of what that make/model banjo actually sold for.

YES! Banjobuyer has an extra link below your results for sold and expired ads. Very interesting and useful info. I don't think banjobarn has that, nor do the regular BHO classifieds. Thanks for reminding me about it.

Chris,

You have another thread asking about this ad, located here:  Potential huber for sale scam? - Discussion Forums - Banjo Hangout

Below is my response to that thread.  This sale is definitely a scam, as the "seller" is using a photo of MY Huber that I have listed for sale on Craig's List.

He sent me a screenshot off his phone and in the top corner it said MTN-SA. Mtn is the african mobile network. When I asked where he was located he said 5th avenue Nashville…
This was enough for me. He did send some photos of the banjo though which I imagine he got for here? Anyone recognise? It has an engraved gold tone ring.

OH, RATS! This is positively a scam! That photo is of MY Huber banjo that I have listed for sale on Craig's List!

A couple of weeks ago, someone took my photos from Craig's List and posted them here on BHO trying to sell. Sherry quickly cancelled the ad and blocked the "new member."

I KNOW this photo is of my banjo:
1. The engraving by Huber is "custom," that I chose, combining engraving from different Huber models.
2. The brown top background and blue bottom background is from my living room with my banjo lying on a blue pad.

Here is the link to my original post of 6/4/22 reporting the scam ad posted on the BHO: Scammer Fake Ad Trying To Sell MY Banjo! - Discussion Forums - Banjo Hangout

Listing a scammer’s name and/or screen name is always helpful.
