1965 Gibson TB-250 Mastertone Banjo

Recommended Posts

This Banjo was originally purchased by my fathers uncle who soon after purchasing it passed on, the banjo was given to my dad and literally has sat in the case THE WHOLE TIME, it has been a case queen its whole life!!! Just recently my dad gave the banjo to me, i was the first one to remove it from its case in 30+ years, i mean when i was a kid i used to open the case in awe of this beautiful instrument, but never took it out.....so since ive had it i have only plucked its strings a few times, not wanting to damage or scratch this thing in anyway because i guarentee this is the most MINT 60's tb-250 in existance PERIOD! and it also came with the original gibson hardshell case

 

PS THE S/N IS STAMPED IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD, YOU CANT SEE IT CAUSE ITS VERY LIGHT IN THE WOOD, I FORGOT TO WRITE IT DOWN BUT ILL GET IT WHEN I SEE IT TOMORROW
