Gibson RB-250 Banjo Mahogany, 1998

Gibson RB-250 Banjo Mahogany, 1998

This Gibson RB-250 example dates to 1998 and is good working order.  It has just been completely worked over and set up by Anne Hartman at The Twelfth Fret.     Fret wear is moderate but it plays cleanly, and delivers that loud, clear Gibson banjo sound.   There is visible wear on the arm-rest plating, sure signs that it’s been used as intended, and that’s a good thing.
