1960's Vintage Gibson Long Neck 5 String Banjo Rb 175 In Great Condition Ohsc For Sale
Beautiful Vintage 60’s Era Gibson BR 175 Long Neck 5 String Banjo. It is completely original.
It is in Great shape for its age. There is the typical aged Lacquer checking on parts of the neck but it is still smooth and very playable. There are a couple of small minor finish chips around the first couple of fret positions but nothing serious or detrimental to the neck. There are also some small finish chips and Dings around the headstock from normal use but there is no wood missing.
The Chrome plated Brass is in Great to excellent condition with no Rust or Pitting.
The white finish is worn through on the skin but is still fully functional and only adds to the vintage character!!
This banjo is structurally sound and fully functional. It will probably need to be gone over by a Professional. A couple of the tuners do slip a bit and need to be tightened/adjusted. These are the Original Grover Tuners. It also has the Original Grover Bridge!!
I have not cleaned the instrument because I have no experience with Banjos whatsoever and I don’t want to risk any damage!
The handle on the “Original” case is broken and will need to be repaired or replaced but the case is complete and functional although in poor condition.
Includes a vintage Banjo Strap and 2 sets of new strings (also vintage).
Please ask any and all questions before offerding. I also have more detailed photos available by request!!
Item will be well packed and fully insured so the shipping will be a bit higher than normal!!
Good Luck and Happy offerding!!!
The odd thing about it is that there is no serial # but a pro Luthier says it is a Gibson and seeing all the Gibson gits in my life I would not doubt that its Gibson all the way. If whoever buys this small treasure can prove its not real Gibson I will give that person a full refund!!
Local Pick Up is Free!!

IS NOW TAKING TAKEING AN ADDITIONAL 9% FEE FROM “SELLERS” SHIPPING COST IN ADDITION TO THE 9% fee from THE final sale price THAT “WE SELLERS” ALREADY PAY! Yes E Bay now charges sellers a shipping fee because on their lunch breaks they all rush over to our houses and help us all to pack everything and then use their gas and extra time to run it to the post office or Fed Ex or wherever. And they charge this fee because they think that the sellers are trying to get extra money by charging higher shipping prices!
Well some sellers might do this but I don't!!
YOU SHOULD EMAIL FOR ANY ADDITIONAL INFO
