For Sale: ~1935 RB-1 with Factory Original Leaves & Bows Fretboard. Original 5-String, features an Huber HR-30 Tonering, an original 5-String Presto Tailpiece, and finally it's original hardshell case. I'm only aware of 3 total RB-1's that shipped with this special inlay. This is an incredibly rare, pre-war original 5-string Gibson banjo. It was found many years ago by Geoff Hohwald and then it made it's way into the personal collection of Steve Huber. It's simply the finest conversion flathead banjo I've ever encountered, which says a whole lot about the tonal contributions of a prewar original 5-string neck. Original frets, geared 5th tuner added. Buyer can choose between Rickard Cyclatronic tuners or Prewar Pancakes. $14,000. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have questions or if you'd like more photos. Videos available on request. Please- serious inquires only. Thanks, Noam Pikelny
