Gibson RB-175 Brown Stain 1965

£1395.00 Was: £1595.00 Next Day if ordered before 3pm

The old-tyme appeal of country and bluegrass is far from a spent force in this day and age, and the banjo continues to find admirers worldwide. We love a banjo here at Wunjos, particularly the more elderly ones; we also love a bit of history, and in the case of this 5-string long neck, there's a bit indeed. Debuted in 1962, the RB-175 existed until 1973, giving long-neck clawhammerers something to think about. A charming, open-backed creature, the RB-175 is fitted with a 24-fret, old-growth mahogany neck topped with an unbound Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, inlaid with pearl dot markers, which finishes in an ebony-veneered tenor guitar-headstock. The rim is a glossy dark brown mahogany with 24 metal brackets, shoes and nuts, and is in better condition than most people we know from 1965! All original from tailpiece to nut, this 1965 Gibson RB-175 banjo is available at Wunjos with a 3 year warranty and hard case as standard. Please call for availability.
