1983 Gibson RB-250

Photo for Ad 155529

1983 Gibson RB-250 in outstanding condition for it's age. There is some light finish checking and some very faint abrasions here and there but it really is in beautiful condition. The setup is great and the banjo plays wonderfully in all positions with no issues. Classic bright and powerful Mastertone sound that makes the perfect bluegrass banjo of course, but could easily be used for any style of music. Appears to be all original with the exception of a 5 star head. Comes with what we believe is the original Gibson hardshell case, also in great condition with a replacement "belt buckle" style handle.

$2700 shipped/insured to the lower 48

1963 Gibson Banjo RB-250 Bowtie

Photo for Ad 155436

Here's a classic bluegrass Gibson banjo, an early '60s version of the "bow tie" Mastertone. Thankfully it's still early enough that it has the full thickness brown maple shell with a 20-hole flathead tonering. Original finish throughout, with nice shading on the mahogany neck and resonator. Original tuners on the headstock, the fifth peg upgraded to a geared version. Shell and its metal parts are original except for some replaced hooks and nuts, but note that the plating on the one-piece diecast flange and the tension hoop show some tarnish and pitting. Plays great thanks to a recent refret, it's set up with a Shubb capo but there are some repaired holes behind the Shubb rail from an earlier 5th string capo. Assorted nicks and dings to the finish as shown but this bowtie Mastertone "shows well" and has a generous helping of vintage vibe. The hardshell case is later than the banjo, it appears to be an early Gold Star case (made in Japan). The three perimeter latches work fine but the upper portion of the locking latch near the handle is detached since the lock is no longer functional.

Acoustic guitars, mandolins, and banjos are still the mainstays at Gryphon, as they have been for over 45 years, though our inventory of steel guitars and ukuleles continues to grow as well. In recent years an important part of our growth has been in instruments by very small companies and individual makers, as we continue to keep one foot, or at least several toes, outside the mainstream music industry.

1915-1920 Vega Fairbanks Little Wonder 6 String Banjo

Photo for Ad 155432

Vega Fairbanks Little Wonder 6 string banjo for sale. Serial # puts it somewhere between 1915-1920. I just had some work done on it, a neck reset and a re-fret, which were both badly needed. Everything else on the banjo is solid and in great condition for being around 100 years old. It plays easily and sounds great, especially old jazz and blues.

$1250. Willing to negotiate on price a little, buyer pays actual shipping. 2% donation to the cafe. Will provide more pictures upon request. Thanks.

1994 Nechville Classic Deluxe Banjo

Photo for Ad 155392

$3,550.00

U.S. made banjo with high grade woods and components.

Exc(+) condition • SN# 215

This 1994 Nechville Classic DeLuxe banjo is in prime original condition. DeLuxe appointments: wide and durable frets, 7-12″ compound radius, premium tiger stripe Maple throughout, black Heli-Mount hardware.

Highly figured Maple banjo with reverse bindings along fingerboard and resonator. Reverse bindings are black outer bindings with white line accent. This accent line is seen from above and below the resonator and sidewalls. On the fingerboard, it’s seen on the face and the side. Nice medium-brown shading that lets you see all the grain. The peghead resembles a classic Gibson fiddle peghead shape. The Ebony veneer has Nechville logo at top and large pearl “Diamond Wing” inlay pattern. Compound 7-12″ radiused Ebony fingerboard repeats the diamond pattern and has “CLASSIC” inlaid in block at 19th fret. White side dots.

Pot construction is a 3-ply Maple rim with full 20-hole pre-War style flathead tone ring built into Nechville’s Heli-Mount adjusting system. Nickel Gotoh tuners with black buttons. These banjos have an easy-to-adjust neck angle system with adjustment access in heelcap. Traditional neck truss-rod adjustment access is above nut in peghead.

This is a well-made banjo that is practically new condition. It is set-up well, plays nice and sounds great. Comes with hard case.

Waldman Banjo Chromatic Cherry 12" New

Photo for Ad 155341

Chuck Waldman is a California builder working in the Sierra foothill town of Sonora. His instruments are his own designs and he has come up with some interesting variations for his shells. This model is called "The Chromatic" and it features a cherry pot with a reclaimed redwood tone ring. This is drilled in progressive depths in the same proportion to the fret spacing, hence the "chromatic" designation.

The banjo is loud and bright and not at all "plunky" or dark sounding. It has good volume with strong projection. “This banjo has my new concept for a tone ring: reclaimed redwood,” Waldman says. “I’m using a “guitar top wood” where the rim contacts the banjo head. Just as this wood affects the voice of a guitar, it produces a clear, concise tone for the banjo.”

This Chromatic has a 25 1/2" scale length and a full cherry neck that feels solid in your hand. The metal parts including the tuners are raw brass which will develop a nice patina over a few years. Ebony fingerboard and headstock veneer with a bubinga backstop. It has a 12-inch head and is beautifully crafted. Please note this instrument does not include a case but we do have suitable cases in stock.

1932 Dobro Tenortrope Tenor Resonator

Photo for Ad 155309

Here we have an example of not only the quality of instruments made during the Golden Age of Luthiery,, but also a testament to the era of innovation. Among the inventors and innovators were the Dopyera Bros. who created not only the Dobro instruments, but National as well.
One of their most unusual innovations was the Tenortrope, a tenor banjo scaled (22 3/4”) neck with a 9 1/2” spider cone, enabling tenor banjoists the ability to play with even more volume.

This example has some eye-dazzling appointments. From the peg head, with its Playing card inspired inlay (that may have been added later), to the gold plated, engraved metal parts, and the matched 4 piece walnut resonator, this instrument is a delight for the optical orbs.

In fine condition, save for some light scratches on the resonator, the tuning machines have been replaced with modern gold plated Planets with pearl styled buttons. There is evidence that at one time there was an electric pickup installed in the cover plate, and then removed, with the 2 knob and jack holes plugged and re-finished. The neck is straight, with low action and no visible fret wear.

Mandolin players and tenor banjoists will recognize this as an opportunity to add a new dimension to their sound palette. And collectors will want to add this to their “rare and unusual” acquisitions.

$2950 including ‘60s hard case.

1880 Dobson Banjo - Restored And Updated Hardware $675

Photo for Ad 155220

This is a really sweet 140 year old Dobson banjo that has had some nice work done on it to make it very playable. New tuners and frets, nice Waverly Fiberskin head and new bridge. The setup is perfect. A beautiful mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard, spun over rim painted black. Great warm old time tone with a nice cluck. I've loved this banjo for years and am upgrading so I need to pass this down the road. $675 shipped in a decent gig bag

1922 Favilla Deluxe Tenor Banjo

No image has been uploaded

Owner: Upload photo

Diamonds, rubies and jewels oh my! This instrument may have acquired much of its extensive bling from a previous owner after leaving the Favilla workshop. 

Not that it wasn't fancy at its inception - with gold-plated hardware and a peg head covered in engraved amber-colored pearloid. The fretboard is inlaid with a mother of pearl leaf and flower motif that even features a pair of flying geese at the 10th fret. The neck and resonator are made of curly burly walnut and the resonator features inlaid lines of multi colored marquetry. The tone ring is of the rolled brass style, with 20 holes partially drilled through the wood rim, and the tailpiece seems to be a Grover "clamshell" engraved "DeLuxe" as found on the Gibson TB-5.

The tuning machines are gold plated Planet style and curiously, extra holes were drilled between the first and second and third and fourth tuning machines. Another curious addition is the insertion of decorative sheets of aluminum foil (easily removed) that line the resonator. 

This high quality, snappy-sounding banjo is in excellent condition with a few scratches on the resonator, easily compensated by the addition of imitation rubies placed at equal distance atop the resonator flange.
Get your banjo bling on!

Chuck Lee sure knows how to build a banjo. This beautiful 11" Rose Hill model features the integral wood tone ring system which helps to provide a full and rich old-time sound that many open back players are seeking. Its cherry wood neck with Dobson style heel is very comfortable and gives your fretting hand a nice vintage slightly deeper feel without being too chunky. This has Peghed 4:1 planetary tuners, a brass wire arm rest, and a scooped fingerboard. There is very little play-wear save for some slight finger wear in the renaissance head and some slight fingering discoloration in the first position of the fretboard. The original hard shell case is included.
