A very cool and hard-to-find banjo, this Gibson RB-00 has the original sunburst maple 5-string neck and pre-war hardware. It also has a sunburst finish maple resonator and a 15/32" maple rim with a raised lip designed to take the place of a tone hoop. Other features include a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, unusual Kluson round-pan geared tuners with amber buttons, and a friction 5th string peg with a matching amber button. This resonator banjo is in very good/excellent condition.   More Details...
