Gibson Mastertone Banjo 1960's Bowtie RB250 Flathead
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-28)
Price : US $2,500.
This is an early to mid 60's Gibson Mastertone Flathead RB250 banjo with the Bowtie pearl pattern. The RB 250's from this era had optional rim selections. This banjo has the large rim which gives it a fuller, richer sound. Another option was chrome or nickel plating. This banjo has chrome plating that is in very good, shiny and smooth condition. This beautifully aged banjo has the deep Gibson mahogany sound. I am the second owner of this banjo. All is original with the exception of the nut, 5th string tuner, and bridge. These three pieces have been upgraded, but the originals are pictured, and are included with the banjo along with the original sales sticker ($550), and the original banjo case.
Payment through Paypal within 24 hours of close of auction please. The payment should include the winning bid and an additional $75 for shipping. If the banjo is to be picked up, the $75 dollar shipping fee may be waved. Please plan to pick the banjo up within one week close of auction. No Friday evening or Saturday calls or pickup please.
Check out my other auction - a 1966 Gibson J50 Guitar - a perfect complement to the banjo.
Thanks for your interest.
