1989 Gibson RB3 Wreath 5 string Banjo

This is a Rich era RB3 Wreath with the highly coveted Kulesh AFP Tone Ring.  This has been inspected and set up at the Banjo Warehouse in Atlanta.

ALL OF OUR SALES INCLUDE A 7 DAY FULL SATISFACTION GUARANTEE

Description

The RB3 Wreath is one of the most coveted Gibson Banjos and this is almost the perfect example of a Wreath 3.  This was made near the beginning of the Greg Rich Era in 1989 and has the AFP Kulesh Tone Ring.  This banjo is POWERFUL and is definitely exceptionally hard to find.

This has a 3 ply hard rock maple shell with a mahogany neck and resonator.  The fretboard is rosewood with a Wreath inlay pattern.  The headstock also features Wreath inlay and the Gibson Logo.  The tuners are original Gibson Tuners and all of the hardware is original and nickel.  This includes a one piece Gibson USA Flange and a Gibson USA Kulesh AFP Tone Ring.  Somebody drilled the holes in the tone ring to a larger size and we tried putting a newer Kulesh Ring in but this AFP ring sounded better.  This banjo is no joke.

There is white binding on the neck and resonator and this includes a worn Original Gibson Hardshell Case.

Condition

The Banjo is definitely in great shape and has been professionally cleaned at the Banjo Warehouse.  The banjo has been disassembled and all of the metal buffed to a shine.  The wood has been waxed and the fretboard cleaned and oiled.

There is checking in the resonator which is typical for Rich era Banjos.  There also is some light fretwear that does not effect the function or sound at all.  The most serious wear is the extra space drilled in the holes of the tone ring.  The banjo is absolutely gorgeous and in fantastic shape.  There are spikes at the 7th and 9th frets.

The case is definitely worn but is clean on the inside and absolutely sturdy and functional.  That is definitely a late 1980's Gibson Case also which is rare.

Set Up

This has been set up at the Banjo Warehouse.  This has a new Huber Frosted Head set to 90.  The bridge is also a New Huber.  The strings are New Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the banjo plays great!!!  This is a powerful banjo that plays like butter.
