REDUCED GIBSON RB-00 Conversion with Brass Hoop CLEAN OBO

Price: $2,600.00 USD

Not your average 00! This a GREAT banjo. All original metal hardware on the pot down to the windowpane tailpiece etc. The flange has minimal pull and is extremely clean. The original 00 rim had some lamination issues so I put in an original rim from a Charles McNeil made at the same time by Gibson which, rather than having a wooden bead at the top, is full thickness at the top supporting a brass hoop tonering just like a style 1, 2 or 11.

Neck was made about 20 years ago by Ken Spiers and is magnificent. The figuring on the fingerboard is beautiful. Currently has newer tuners on it but will come with the original super clean tenor neck with original 2 tab tuners. This banjo really cracks and is sonically right in line with thick rim hoop conversions of the same vintage!

Shipped in newer HSC. Will loosen it and ship safely or meet you within about 2 hours of Floyd, Virginia.
