For Sale Gibson RB800 Excellent Condition. This has been babied in my family for years. I am not real educated about all the things I need to tell about it, so ask ( and tell me what you would like to know & I will do my best to answer). I have lots of pictures of the banjo.
I hope they give this Banjo the justice it deserves, it really is a beautiful instrument.

Turtle Hill Bluegrass Woody 5 String Resonator Banjo

Photo for Ad 129359

Extreme curly maple wood;

Honey, satin finish;

Tony Pass Lost Timbre rim;

Kirschner tailpiece;

Gotoh tuning machines;

MOP inlays

Excellent sound with lighter weight - It weighs 8 lbs.

Spikes at frets 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12.

Small amount of fret wear, nothing serious near the nut

Currently strung with GHS PF150 strings. Extra set will be included.

The only issue (if you can call it that) is there was a sliding 5th string capo on the banjo that has been removed. You can see the fill marks in the side of the binding but cannot feel them.

Access Hardshell case

Banjo now has a Sosebee .656 bridge instead of the bridge shown in the pictures. I think this improved the sound and the playability

There is a review on BHO under Turtle Hill banjos

Best I can determine it was made in 2006, as were all the Turtle Hill Woody banjos, so there is a limited number of them available.

I have a video and more pictures for the serious potential buyer.

2006 Huber Lancaster $2500

Photo for Ad 129342

I have a used Huber Lancaster for sale. It is in very good condition. Just had a new head installed, cleaned and set up. It sounds great and I almost didn't want to sell. I have other banjos and need to make a purchase for another instrument of course.

I have the action set up low and it has a good ring and is loud. Intonation is good too. Interested buyers I can send pics to.

The resonator has a ding on the side. I had Dusty Strings look at and it is stable.

Thanks.

1925 Gibson TB-3 Conversion

Photo for Ad 129338

$2,995.00

Case: Hardshell case

Description: This ’25 TB-3 is a nice sounding example of Gibson’s first year of ball bearing tone rings. It features a good quality mahogany conversion neck by an unknown maker and original metal parts (aside from a newer Presto tailpiece and modern tuners). It does have a fair amount of play wear, especially on the resonator. Comes in a newer hardshell case. On consignment.

1930s Gibson RB-00

Photo for Ad 129219

$3,995.00

Case: Newer hardshell

Description: With the exception of a modern Remo head and a Snuffy Smith bridge, this banjo has all the original parts it had when it left the Gibson factory 80 or so years ago. The back of the neck shows play wear, but the back of the resonator is in pristine condition. Whoever owned it played it but took exceptional care of it. This is a great sounding non-Mastertone model...even without a tone ring and sporting the 0.5" wood rim it can hold its own in most any jam. And this is another one that anyone looking to lighten the load would find a true joy to play.

Gibson Earl Scruggs Standard 5 String Resonator Banjo, 1992

Photo for Ad 129039

Gibson Earl Scruggs Standard Model 5 String Resonator Banjo, c. 1992, made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, serial # 1388, sunburst lacquer finish, laminated maple resonator, laminated maple rim; maple neck with ebony fingerboard, black hard shell case.

Overall length is 38 1/4 in. (97.2 cm.), 11 in. (27.9 cm.) diameter head, and 3 3/4 in. (9.5 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 26 1/2 in. (673 mm.). Width of nut is 1 1/4 in. (32 mm.).

This banjo has seen a decent amount of play but remains a very nice example of one of Gibson's best Mastertone re-issues. There are some parts changes consistent with an actual Scruggs-style player including variable-pitch Scruggs tuners for the second and third strings and a sliding capo for the fifth. The tailpiece is a newer clamshell style re-issue, and there is no armrest. All other parts appear original.

The finish shows some wear with small dings, rubs, and chips, most visibly on the headstock. The fingerboard has some small fills where railroad spikes for the fifth string were mounted and removed. The truss rod cover adorned with Earl Scruggs name has a small repair to the bottom screw flange. The interior label is signed by Scruggs and this is a very good playing and sounding banjo, a tribute to his name and Gibson's. Overall Excellent - Condition.

$3,500.00 + shipping

Deering Sierra Mahogany Banjo. Warranty Card says it was purchased 12/16/95. Serial Number # 12118995-4539. Comes with Huber Bridge(installed) and original bridge. Also comes with capo, I believe it was a paige but cant see any markings on it. Elite head. Comes with TKL hard case. Spikes on G string.

Pot looks like it had repair done to it. Chrome parts looks dirty. Never got the schatter pick up to work when I plugged it in once. I barely have free time so never got to learn it.

1890 S.S. Stewart Banjeaurine in overall good condition, there is a hole in the neck presumably where a fifth string capo once was and there are two other random holes inside the pot. We just got this back from our banjo tech who did a complete setup and installed a fresh set of Aquila Nylgut banjo strings. It has a very sweet, mellow, and pleasing tone. A very cool piece of banjo history that also sounds good and is fun to play!

1938 Gibson RB-1

Photo for Ad 128784

$11,995.00

Case: Original case

Description: This 1938 Gibson RB-1 is a one-owner instrument originally sold through H. Polliack & Co., Ltd., a Gibson retailer in South Africa. It bears the "Made In The U.S.A." stamp on the back of the peghead indicative of an Gibson export instrument. The lack of a tone-ring offers a significant weight savings, but the banjo will still do just fine in any bluegrass situation. All parts and hardware are factory original to the banjo and it is in exceptional condition cosmetically. To top it all off, it was brought back to the US still residing in its original Redline case. This is the total package!

Gibson TB-3 Mastertone Conversion With Steve Huber Tone Ring

Photo for Ad 128737

Gibson TB-3 Mastertone Conversion with Steve Huber Tone Ring Model 5 String Resonator Banjo (1926), made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, serial # 8226-45, dark mahogany lacquer finish, laminated maple resonator, laminated maple rim; maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, black hard shell case.

This is a very fine and interesting 1920s Gibson Mastertone conversion to 5-string banjo, with an original 1926 TB-3 rim fitted with a very finely made older replica 5-string neck and a special flathead conversion tone ring by the maestro of these, Steve Huber. As all-original Gibson Mastertone 5-string banjos from this period are almost unobtainable, nearly all examples in use today are similarly converted from Tenor or Plectrum.

The Mastertone TB-3 was Gibson's baseline professional tenor banjo, but still a medium/fancy instrument and considered a Gibson working musician's classic. The model was the lowest grade banjo with the full Mastertone flange, resonator, and tone ring hardware package; the original resonator is bound on the bottom edge but otherwise plain. The 1926 tone ring was originally the arch-top ball bearing style, coupled with the 2-piece tube-and-plate flange in use at the time.

This banjo has been fitted with the special Huber flathead conversion tone ring that does not require cutting the rim, which brings the sound into the classic Bluegrass realm. While the combination of this flathead ring with the two-piece flange is not absolutely the Bluegrass standard, it still makes for a very fine-sounding instrument at a price only a small fraction of what an original flat-head, one-piece flange Mastertone rim alone would command.

The maple neck is similar in style to what a period RB-3 would have carried, but with a slightly longer 27" scale. The original TB-3 used a mahogany neck, and the combination of the long scale and harder maple construction definitely add to the power of this instrument's sound. The fingerboard and headstock face have a notched diamond pearl inlay similar to the original, with a larger "Mastertone" block with slightly oversized lettering at the bottom end. The two lower tuners are 5-Star Planets with composite buttons, while the upper two are cammed modern Scruggs pegs. The tailpiece is a 5-string replica of the original Presto style.

The workmanship on the neck is very fine if not exactly to original Gibson spec. We don't know who made it, but it is to a higher standard than some we have seen! The original tenor neck is included, as is the tailpiece and original arch-top tone ring, still housed in the labeled box Mr. Huber shipped the rim in. This package makes for a wonderful collection documenting some of this banjo's history, from birth as a jazz 4-string to its current incarnation as a bluegrass powerhouse.

Overall length is 37 3/4 in. (95.9 cm.), 11 in. (27.9 cm.) diameter head, and 3 3/4 in. (9.5 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 27 in. (686 mm.). Width of nut is 1 1/4 in. (32 mm.).

This banjo is in excellent playing condition overall, with some typical finish wear to the resonator and back of the neck. The lacquer in both areas shows numerous small scuffs and dings, but no major loss. The chrome plating on the rim hardware is largely intact, with some small areas of dirt and wear but no major loss. The bolts to mount the resonator have been replaced by small screws.

The neck finish shows an area of small dings and chips to the finish on the back around the 7th-10th fret area, and the heavily yellowed lacquer on the binding is worn off in a number of spots. The lacquer on the headstock face is similarly yellowed and chipped off in spots.

There are railroad spikes in the fingerboard at positions 7 and 9, and a filled hole from a previous spike at fret 10. There is a small piece of rosewood chipped off the treble side of the fingerboard at the rim joint, and an equally small piece of binding missing on the bass side.

Overall a really great-sounding and playing banjo; one of the nicest tube-and-plate conversions we have handled. The tone is rich and full but still with the bluegrass "ring" Mastertones are so sought after for. Includes a more recent HSC and the original Tenor neck and tailpiece, along with the dismounted original archtop tone ring. A unique conversion and a very fine player's instrument. Excellent Condition.
