This is another "keeper" that I've decided to let go. An all original RB-3 from the Greg Rich era at Gibson. Of the modern era at Gibson the years basically 1988-1993 are considered the best of the best under the oversight of Greg Rich. This RB-3 was made in November of 1989. The banjo has the well known "K" series tone ring from Richard Kulesh Sr. "Gibson USA" is in the right places and this banjo also has Keith D-tuners installed. 5th string spikes are at 7-10th frets. At one point a sliding 5th string capo was installed but has been removed. The banjo has the normal finish checking on the resonator and bumps and dings in places. This is a "players banjo" and a workhorse at that. I had Robin Smith refit the heel back when I got it for a 5/8 bridge and dress the frets. The banjo ships in it's "The Gibson" hard case. If you desire more pictures or have questions, don't hesitate to ask.
