GIBSON RB3 - WREATH - S/No: 3-0209-03 - Sold

Gibson banjos are at the heart of the legend of bluegrass music along with names such as Earl Scruggs, the father of bluegrass banjo. Most other bluegrass banjo makers have followed the Gibson construction methods and measurements. The name 'Mastertone' is a hallmark. Gibson stopped making banjos in 2010 but they're still held in awe and hold their price. Some models are actually increasing in value.

To find an RB3 in such excellent condition is rare. Tone ring, flange, rim, neck, etc have been verified (pictures enclosed) as genuine Gibson. No fretwear. Discounting a few patina marks it's like new. The owner bought this banjo from Janet Davis Music on a visit to USA. (Verified by receipt). After bringing it back to Australia he played it a few hours, tucked it under the bed, and left it there.

Mahogany neck and resonator. Nickel plated hardware. Rosewood fingerboard. Wreaths inlays. Presto-style tailpiece (Inscribed 'Gibson'). Scorpion bridge. New Remo head, new strings and Stu Mac brackets and hooks (as per the original.)

In original TKL-style hard case with double neck cradle. The case is a little shabby and the lock is broken because the combination was lost, but it did what it was supposed to do: protect the banjo.
