This banjo has very few modifications: the addition of a strap button (NOT recommended for use), a new bridge, a clamshell tail piece (old broken Waverly tail piece is also included), and a new transparent banjo head to showcase the solid brass tone ring. This banjo plays beautifully with very minor checking, tiny dings and just a few scratches (some on headstock, back of neck, etc). Minor tarnishing of the hardware could probably be rubbed out. The chipboard case has taken a beating but is functional. Note: Due to the fragile nature of long neck banjos...This vintage Gibson RB-175 will be carefully packed and double-boxed. You won't find a Vintage Gibson RB-175 much nicer than this one at this low price!
