1995 Gibson RB-3

Photo for Ad 139313

These "re-issue" Gibson's are getting harder and harder to find unaltered. This RB-3 is all original with "Gibson" in all the right places. The metal shows a bit of patina but I'll leave the polishing to the new owner. Most folks prefer it to be left alone anyway. There are some minor indentations on the back of the neck above the heel area where probably it's been picked up while wearing picks. Nothing through the finish and can't see in pictures, but worth mentioning. I've gone totally through this banjo and it's ready to go with a new Remo head and GHS strings. 5th string spikes are at 7th and 9th frets. It also has it's original "The Gibson" hard case with dust cover. The combination lock does not work. This banjo has been played very little as there is no fret wear at all...and they've not been dressed. It's hard to believe that 1995 was 24 years ago but.... This banjo is in excellent condition for it's age. Also included is a very nice Levy's Leather padded strap. 2 1/2" wide and (right now) 53" long with plenty of room for adjustment either way.

This banjo has the classic Gibson mahogany tone associated with the RB-3. I hope to get a video up ASAP if it doesn't sell first. More pics available upon request!
