1930 Gibson RB-1

Photo for Ad 127715


Case: Original case

Description: This is an excellent example of an original 5-string pre-war Gibson banjo owned by the same family since it was first purchased. The gentleman we acquired it from had played it since the 1940’s when his dad had given it to him. The resonator and back of the neck show lots of play wear…. no abuse, just honest play! The brass hoop “tone ring” really pops on this one...it’s volume will allow you to hang in most any jam, and the weight will make your back happy! Original tuners, including friction 5th string. Spikes never installed on this banjo.
