For Sale: SOLD PEND. PYMT 1954 RB100 conv. for sale by Ron Stewart (expired)



Ok, going to give this banjo away at $2,300.00. It has to go!
Hey banjo pickers,
I've got an amazing 1954 Gibson RB100 with an unknown 20 hole Flat Head ring. I got this banjo and the ring was in it, and after dressing the frets which are near new, doing a complete set-up, well, it sounds incredible, so I didn't even take the ring out. This banjo is in excellent condition. Just slight finish wear on the neck in first position, and a scratch here and there, but overall excellent, especially for a 1954! Sound?
Unreal! Absolutely a cannon! You won't find a better banjo. It has a growl, a rattle, and volume! The tuners have been replaced with planetary geared tuners but original knobs from old Eltons, and it has a Waverly tailpiece. It sounded so good I didn't even change the tailpiece! I can put a Presto on if you prefer. It does have a geared 5th peg. Other than that, all original, except ring. These old 100's are getting hard to find, especially in this shape.
$2,300.00 Shipped to you in a hardshell case, insured in lower 48.

Do not miss this opportunity. It's a monster axe.
You will have to pay a whole lot more to get a banjo this good, and I mean a lot.

Here's a sound sample:
