Gibson Mastertone Prewar PB-4 1925 Plectrum Banjo PB4 522 Geib & Schaefer Rare!! A True Gem!! MUST SEE!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    The Gibson Mastertone PB-4 is an exceptionally rare banjo that had a very short production run; only a dozen are known to exist today. This particular banjo is from the first year the Mastertone line was introduced, 1925. It is a Plectrum style banjo with 22 frets, 4 strings, and a 26.5” scale length. It is a style 4, having high grade mahogany wood, fiddle-shaped peghead, and Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with "hearts and flowers" inlay. The resonator has two narrow concentric rings of white-black-white purfling. Being from 1925 it has the ball-bearing tone ring, two-piece "tube-and-plate" flange with a grooved tension hoop, Presto tailpiece, Grover tuners, and nickel plated hardware.


    Serial Number 8486-4 Model PB-4 Year 1925 Style 4 Frets 22 Scale Length 26 ½” Neck/Resonator Mahogany Fingerboard Brazilian Rosewood with “hearts and flowers" inlay Dimensions in case: 40” x 15” x 5 ½” D Weight 15.5 lbs unpacked



    Banjo is in remarkable condition for its age. It is all original and plays beautifully. There are the usual age related signs such as finish crazing and discoloration of hardware that you would expect to find. No damage or repairs. Neck is straight. Everything looks great. One of the resonator hold-down screws is non-original, though this is easily replaceable. Case is clean too, minor ware and is missing the original handle.
