Gibson TB-250 Mastertone "Bowtie" Tenor Banjo Early 1960s w/Fitted Hard Case
Remarkably gently aged over 60+ years of only the most occasional home use, this early 1960s Kalamazoo-crafted Gibson TB-250 Mastertone "Bowtie" Tenor Banjo boasts exactly the articulate, responsive, full-spectrum mahogany tone we're looking for in a Gibson tenor of this era, with a familiar 1 1/4" nut width, 22.75" scale bound rosewood fingerboard tastefully inlaid in Gibson's instantly recognizable "Bowtie" style. Low, even action and only the lightest signs of use more than ensure this Mastertone has some serious mileage ahead!
