Gibson RB-250 Mastertone 5-String Banjo 1962 SOLD

Gibson RB-250 Mastertone 5-String Banjo 1962   SOLD

There has been some discussion on the hardware used on this banjo. The RB-250 did not come factory in gold but that said, in 1962 Gibson would fill virtually any custom request. The hardware shows none of the pitting typical of re-plated hardware. Also the cost to upgrade after the banjo was built would have been huge so we are going on the theory that this was a custom order. Tailpiece: I found several of these gold-plated tailpieces in the boxes of 1960s Gibson hardware I acquired when Gibson Canada shut down in 1979. So I am assuming they were stock Gibson issue for at least a few of their gold plated banjos, though I’ve never seen any. I gather they were made by Elton but am happy for input from anybody out there who knows more.

Martin GPCPA3 2010 (Consignment) SOLD

Martin GPCPA3 2010 (Consignment) SOLD

The new Performing Artist line from Martin Guitars has made a real splash into their already comprehensive line up of guitars. These instruments feature all the quality and good looks  you come to expect from Martin with a few new twists aimed at the gigging musician. The Performing Artist neck profile has a little less mass and a flatter shape  than Martins standard low profile neck. This  super smooth feel will appeal to fans of smaller neck profiles and help ease hand fatigue for those long sets. The neck joins the body at the 14th fret and the venetian style cutaway provides excellent access to the upper frets. The on board Fishman F1 Aura pickup system has everything a performer could want including a built in tuner all in a two button and small screen package which helps retain the sleek aesthetic appeal of these guitars. This example is in excellent shape and comes with the original hardshell case.

Martin D-28 1969 (Consignment) SOLD

Martin D-28 1969 (Consignment) SOLD

One of the last Brazilian rosewood D-28 models this guitar has seen some action and wow does it sound great! With a deep and full bass response that you can feel going through the guitar and into your chest and a deliciously rich set of overtones this is the sound that made the D-28 a classic. The trebles are there as well and become more present as you dig in. This guitar shines when played loud and aggressive but still responds well when picked with a  lighter touch. What a great example of why so many guitars over the years have copied this classic design! Comes with non original Martin hardshell case.
