Gibson RB 800 Banjo
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-10-05)
Price : US $1,385.
Here is a very nice original Gibson RB-800 banjo. Serial No. 81370078. Made in USA, Kalamazoo, MI. Banjo was bought new in/about 1981 and was used by original owner for about 35 years, including his time at the Grand Ole Opry along with a very popular local (PA) band. The original guarantee was never sent in for this instrument and is included with this sale. Has a good Gibson sound. The only replacement parts were the five tuning keys. Is in good condition; however, it was dropped at one time and damaged the neck, which was repaired (see pic) about 10 years ago glued and pinned under cover plate (pins do not show). Ten years after repair, has not changed. Does have usual wear on arm rest and tail piece - other parts in good condition. The spot you see on the resonator is wear from player's belt buckle over the years. On the rim, there is a minor scratch/crack which does not go through the rim. Comes in hard case, which is in good condition, but not original to the banjo. There are spikes for the fifth string at A, B, & C. Thanks for looking and/or bidding and good luck on Ebay. Local buyers may pick up.
