Stelling Red Fox 5-String Banjo, 1991

Stelling Red Fox 5-String Banjo, 1991

First built for  the late Bill Emerson in late 1989 and moving into the production catalog in 1990, the Stelling Red Fox quickly became one of Stelling’s most popular models. Sporting a gloss finish with red stained, highly flamed Maple, and with Abalone inlays of leaves and a Red Fox, this is a very attractive and great sounding instrument.

Nechville Leon Hunt Phantom Flame Maple, 2013

Nechville Leon Hunt Phantom Flame Maple, 2013

The Nechville Leon Hunt Phantom Model, while not a ‘formal’ Nechville model, is based on the Nechville Phantom XXV (Phantom 25). It uses all the Nechville Phantom elements plus very highly figured maple for the neck and resonator (rather than the stock figured walnut construction), with a slight amber tint to the finish. These spectacular banjos are based closely on the Nechville banjo made for Leon Hunt.

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

❌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.
