1960 Gibson RB 250 Banjo Bowtie
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2011-06-29)
Price : US $1,977.
1960 Gibson RB250 Bowtie. All original. Serial number 0-3404-3. This particular instrument is listed on the Banjophiles website - http://www.banjophiles.com/SerNumData/BowtieEraGibsons.htm . 4 hole archtop ring. Thicker rim. Had cam d tuners installed. They are not currently on there, but are included in the sale. Period correct hard shell case. The fifth string tuner was replaced with a geared tuner, which is a good thing, the original and matching button was used though. The only issue with this gem is that something happened at the neck heel, exactly where the two pieces of the heel meet. It could had been a lag bolt screwed in too tight, or maybe it cracked from a fall, etc. Please see the pictures, it is a very good repair and hard to see. Had a well known banjo luthier check it out. He said it was very well repaired. No issues ever. Action is perfect. Please email with any questions. Shipping should be right around $50 with insurance. Instrument is for sale locally as well. I am in Cincinnati OH if you would like to see it in person. Please feel free to email with questions.
