I have a Gibson banjo, made in the early 70's. RB75 style with Flying Eagle inlay. Has a good 3ply rim with Gibson sticker but no serial number. It has an unplated JD Crowe Blackjack tone ring from Gibson, number 1308, Gibson clamshell tailpiece, Gibson armrest, Gibson resonator with rings, Sunburst from the 60's, new head, Mcpeake bridge, set up by Curtis McPeake a month ago. Plays and sounds great. Extra warm tone up the neck. Frets have been played but I had them dressed and leveled. New hard shell case. Spikes at 7,8,9,10. The neck is a two piece maple. Good Banjo for someone not wanting to spend alot of money.
