This is a very early "Postwar" 1949/50 Gibson RB-150 banjo . The earliest ones still have the thumbscrews in the prewar locations. It is in excellent condition. F.O.N. 6484-xx These sound amazing with just the brass hoop and are built very similar to the later prewar original 5-strings. All original except for the head, tailpiece and I believe the button on the friction 5th string tuner. They did not make a lot of these and many have been cut for tone rings . Nice ones like this are rather rare. Price is $3695.00 plus shipping and insurance. Comes with a vintage Gibson hard shell case.
