1964 Gibson RB-180

[1964 Gibson RB-180]

A fine example of Gibson's response to the "Folk Boom" of the 60s. This is a Long neck banjo, similar to the Vega that Pete Seeger played. The RB-180 features a Mastertone tone ring, heavy plywood shell in a black finish, bound fingerboard, and kluson tuners.

This banjo in particular has very little wear on it, and has clearly not been played out extensively. It has a very nice tone, and the long scale length gives it really nice deep bass.

Soft shell case included.
