1926 Gibson MB



This is a 1926 Gibson MB style 2? 00? (Mandolin Banjo) Serial Number 8490-4, with a 10.5” pot complete with 3-ply Maple wood rim, diamond flange, maple resonator, tuners that work perfectly and the original bridge.  The skin head looks recent and the tailpiece is a little funky, but this is a beautiful, clean, nice playing piece of Pre-War Gibson Banjo!  There are no more parts with it … what you see is what you get, so come and get it!

Peghead logo is Pearl, ''The Gibson''. Calfskin Head is 10 1/2'', and the overall length 25''.
