Nechville Midnight Phantom Standard 5-String Banjo

Nechville Midnight Phantom Standard 5-String Banjo

The Nechville Midnight Phantom Standard 5-string banjo offers all of the quality and technical advances of Tom Nechville’s designs, with subtle decoration. “Standard” isn’t really an official Nechville designation; we use it as many of the instruments we receive from them have custom features.  You can read our post on the Midnight Phantom Custom here.

❌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.
