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.

Gold Tone BT-2000 Banjitar 6-String Banjo

Gold Tone BT-2000 Banjitar 6-String Banjo

The maple-rimmed twelve-inch pot of the Gold Tone BT-2000 Banjitar brings out the full-range sound spectrum of a guitar blended with the plunky old-time tone of the banjo. The brass tone ring provides crisp clarity and the slim neck makes playing it a pleasure. Tastefully simple star-and-dot vintage inlays set off the radiused ebony fretboard. The BT-2000 banjo guitar will lend an authentic touch to your blues or Old Time stylings.
