Up for sale is a Gibson PB-3 Mastertone banjo. This banjo features the second version of the "ball-bearing" tone ring. The frets are original but show minimal wear and play beautifully up the neck with no buzzing. An early owner had his name and the year 1933 painted on the inside of the resonator in gold paint. Plating is mint throughout with the exception of some armrest wear. There is also some finish wear on the back of the neck. This is a beautiful sounding and playing instrument. Original hardshell case include in good shape.
