1968 Gibson RB250 5 string Banjo
This is a very rare Bowtie RB250 with a Fiddle Headstock. The Headstock was only used for a short time. This also includes a clean hardshell case. This has been set up and is a fantastic playing and sounding banjo.
ALL OF OUR SALES INCLUDE A 7 DAY FULL SATISFACTION GUARANTEE!!!
This is a Mahogany banjo with a 3 ply Hard Rock Maple shell. The neck is also mahogany with an ebony fretboard. The fretboard has a bowtie inlay pattern. The hardware is nickel. The banjo is all original except for the thumbscrews, tailpiece and tuning keys. In addition one coordinator rod has been added. This has a very rare Fiddle Headstock which was only used for a short time in the late 1960’s. This has spikes in frets 7-10 and 12. The banjo is truly a cool banjo that has the classic vintage banjo sound.
The banjo is definitely in good shape for a vintage banjo. The pot looks great. The resonator is overall clean and the hardware really looks good. The back of the neck has several spots of wear but the fretboard is very clean. The frets are also super clean and I do think they are original. There is some checking on the banjo on the pot and the neck. This is a really attractive piece that has a lot of vibe and mojo. The case is also in really good shape.
All of our banjos are set up here at the Banjo Warehouse. This has comfortable action and the banjo still has a lot of tone and volume. The banjo has proper intonation. The head has been set to 90 on a drum dial. This has a new Huber Head and new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings. The bridge is a Snuffy Smith bridge.
