1954 Gibson RB-250 banjo (FON 4-2433-179) with 1965 RB-250 neck (FON 340590). Though it doesn’t say it, the resonator doesn’t seem like it is original to it. Initially looks like TB-100, but is double bound, so unclear. This was an archived posting of banjo previously available at Greg Boyd’s. Description was:
Exc condition. 1954 pot SN#4-2433-179 1965 neck SN#340590. The original hardware of the 1954 pot has great patina from natural oxidation. Most of the hardware can be easily recognized as original. Thumbscrews appear to be newer. The wood rim and the finish are in good shape, too. Maple rim and Maple resonator with Mahogany neck. Antique’d white bindings around resonator and along fingerboard AND peghead. Tobacco brown and gold sunburst finish. Bowtie peghead with Gibson logo block letters inlaid, with Crown inlaid below the logo. Original monstrously heavy tuners (like Buick bumpers), have been replaced with later ’60’s or early ’70’s Gibson 2-band offset tuners. Four-hole original archtop tonering. Comes with hardshell case.
