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

❌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.

❌SOLD❌   Deering Sierra Mahogany 5-String Banjo Satin Natural, 2020

Here’s a Deering Sierra Mahogany 5-string banjo in satin finish, a couple of years old and in very nice condition. The Sierra is one of Deering’s most popular banjos for good reason – it’s an excellent instrument. The Deering Sierra Mahogany is also available in Maple.   Both versions carry a host of high-end features  that are very meaningful in terms of tone and playability , but have less decoration than higher-priced models.

❌SOLD❌ Deering Tenbrooks Legacy Banjo, 2004

❌SOLD❌  Deering Tenbrooks Legacy Banjo, 2004

The Deering Tenbrooks Legacy banjo is a professional grade instrument combining Mahogany for the neck and resonator with Maple for the tone ring. This example dates to 2004, built in Spring Valley California, and has a rather low serial number – 0020. It is in overall good shape, but it has definitely been used as intended and there is moderate fret wear and a few small scuffs around the resonator.
