❌SOLD❌  Gibson RB-250 Mastertone Banjo Mahogany, 1976

The Gibson RB-250 Mastertone was the working-musician’s banjo for decades and offers that classic Gibson sound with the “Snap” to the treble attack that only Gibsons have. This is essentially the same banjo as the famous Gibson RB-3 without the Wreath inlay, Gibson built a few RB-250 banjos every years from 1949 until 2010, when a devastating flood in Nashville destroyed Gibson’s Banjo and Mandolin facilities.

Introduced in 1954 and offered until the devastating Nashville floods of 2010, the Gibson Mastertone RB 250 was the workhorse banjo for countless serious players. The RB-250 was the entry into the Mastertone line with any of the variations on that flat head tone ring and rim system. Here we have a Gibson Mastertone RB 250 built during 1975, with a Mahogany resonator and neck and walnut-stain finish.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Mastertone RB250 5 String Banjo, 2003

For decades, the Gibson Mastertone RB250 banjo was the benchmark, workhorse banjo for countless players in country and bluegrass styles. During the later 1960’s and the 1970’s, however, quality suffered, until in 1984 Gibson hired Greg Rich to revamp the line and bring quality back to its original high level.
