This is a 1960’s Gibson RB250 that I believe is a 1966 with at least a few changed parts. This definitely is the original neck and resonator and I’m not sure about the shell but it might be. I have seen a lot of vintage Gibson Shells that would fit the description of this shell, thin and blue, but I still am not sure about the rim. This has a new 37 hole tone ring and new 5 star planet tuners.
The flange and tension hoop I am confident are original. The hardware appears to be correct for this period.
Basically it is a parts banjo but with the 1960’s neck and resonator, the vintage Gibson Hardware like the flange and hoop, and the fact the shell is likely original, plus the ring is the type of archtop it is, this banjo does have the vintage tone. This will deliver the experience of playing a 1960’s RB250.
The banjo is in rough condition but it is still functional. If you simply want to have that old sound and a solid vintage Gibson Banjo, well this is it.
This comes with a Guardian Hardshell Case that is brand new with the tag.
This banjo is worn. This is a Player’s Banjo.
The finish is in really good shape. I do by the way believe the finish is original. The hardware has some wear but it’s not bad. We did not clean this banjo but we did oil the fretboard.
The frets are the old style thin fret but look good still. It may not be the worst idea to put higher frets but it is nowhere near necessary. The banjo is a great player. This has a 5th string capo.
I’m not going to say if these D Tuners work. Let’s just say they are on there and maybe they work, maybe they don’t. It will be a Banjo Warehouse Surprise!!!
The case is brand new.
I don’t know what kind of head this is but it feels like an old head. I have it set to 90. This bridge is some sort of compensated bridge and we threw new Huber Strings on this. The banjo has seen better days but this still has plenty of good days ahead.
