Epiphone MB 250 5 String Banjo with hard shell case
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-11)
Price : US $345.00
Extremely clean Gibson Epiphone MB 250 Masterbuilt 5 string banjo with hardshell case, 2 new sets of strings, capo and padded leather strap.
The case is the original Epiphone case that came with the banjo. I will also include a Grover compensated bridge.
The sound of this banjo is bright and clear up and down the neck. The head is not damaged but is slightly darkened where my hand rested. It is a Remo head. This is abeautiful banjo and will hold its own against any but the best Gibson mastertones. You could probably move it up there with them by getting a better tone ring, but it is really not necessary. This banjo shines on its own and for the price, you CANNOT get anything that even comes close.
If you go to Guitar Center and buy this banjo new it is $599 on a list price of $915. That does not include the case. I am pasting in a link to it along with the two reviews that are there. http://www.guitarcenter.com/Epiphone-MB-250-Banjo-518698-i1150113.gc
There are two small flaws on this banjo. The first is that the tuning button on the 5th string is cracked. This does not affect anything. That is a $2.00 item from any music store and is easily replaced with a screw driver. The second is a very slight indentation in the finish about 1/2 cm (very small) on the back of the resonator. I was unable to get it to show up in any pictures but if you look for it you can find it.
Shipping charges will be shipping and insurance only. There is no charge for packing. If you are local- Richmond, VA- I will work with you on pickup.
