1950’s Gibson RB100 5 string Parts Banjo
ALL OF OUR BANJOS INCLUDE A 7 DAY FULL SATISFACTION GUARANTEE
This is a 1950’s RB100 that has been converted with a 5 string neck with a flying eagle inlay and a 40 hole archtop hardshell case. The resonator, flange and tension hoop plus the hooks and nuts are a 1950’s RB100. The armrest and tailpiece may also be but the patina doesn’t match so those could be newer parts. The tone ring and neck are not original to the banjo but they are good parts.
The neck is a homemade neck with no truss rod but it is functional with no issues. This banjo is definitely a solid player. The 40 hole archtop tone ring is an unknown ring but is clearly quality and this banjo also sounds really good. This is a solid banjo that is priced to allow someone to good a strong vintage Gibson tone at a great price. This also includes a vintage hardshell case.
Condition and Set Up
This banjo has some wear and patina and falls into a category I call Organic Relic. This has been aged naturally which gives it an authentic vintage vibe.
The hardware has tarnish which really helps with the aged look. The finish on the resonator is in great shape. The finish on the neck has heavy checking and some other aging. The frets are in great shape and this has a 5th string capo. The banjo is definitely a cool looking banjo that has normal age and playwear. The case is a vintage case that is in really good shape for its age.
The head is a Pre EPA Remo frosted head which is set to 90. The strings are new Huber strings and this is set up well. This is a great sounding and playing banjo that is set up and ready to go!!!
