Description

This is a Rich era RB4 which is a very rare and special banjo.  This is all original and includes the original case.

This has a 3 ply hard rock maple shell with a Burled Walnut resonator.  The hardware is nickel.  The neck is also walnut and this has a rosewood fretboard.  There is w/b/w binding on each side of the neck and resonator.  The neck has a Flying Eagle inlay pattern and the headstock also has inlay work.  This has a one piece armrest and a Gibson Presto tailpiece.  This has a Gibson USA tone ring made by Richard Kulesh and a Gibson USA flange.  Both are stamped.

This has a cool addition in that Greg Rich signed the Mastertone label on the inside of the banjo.  This was not done at the factory but is definitely a cool point.

Not only that but this also has an original hardshell case, case key and Gibson Owner's Manual.  RB4 banjos are rare but to find a Rich era, signed by Greg Rich in this condition with the complete package is almost unheard of.

Condition

This is definitely clean and was well taken care of.  The finish looks great with basically no real sign of use.  The hardware also is very clean and really has a nice glow.  The neck and fretboard are also clean and this has clean frets.  In fact the frets look fantastic.  There was once a 5th string capo which has been removed and left a couple of small holes in the side of the neck.  These holes have been filled but are still visible if you look closely.  This is absolutely gorgeous.

The case is in really good shape also with a bit of wear on the outside but this is a clean case that has no structural issues.

Set Up

This has been professionally set up here at the Banjo Warehouse.  This has a new Huber frosted head by Remo which is set to 90 on a drum dial.  This has correct intonation.  This is set up with nice action that produces a lot of tone while still feeling great to play.  I am thrilled to have this because Rich era RB4's almost never show up.  This is a clean and all original example of a wonderful banjo and the complete package.
