   2012 Epiphone MB-500 Banjo

Not vintage, not collectible, just a whole lot of Bluegrass tone and playability at a reasonable price. Styled after the mid-century Epiphone banjos, this instrument comes to us from a player who was given the instrument in hopes that he would endorse the model.

Shortly thereafter, Gibson, the parent company decided to discontinue this model in favor of a much cheaper, easy to produce, inferior version. The result is that this particular MB-500 series is now actively sought by players who want that ringing tone with a lot of separation that is the hallmark of a Bluegrass banjo.

Visually stunning, with all metal parts gold plated, including the engraved arm rest, clamshell tailpiece, and Mastertone style flathead tone ring. The flame Maple neck matches the flame on the 2 piece resonator back. The ebony fretboard features the vintage Epiphone cloud inlay that's one of the more attractive fretboard inlays ever to grace a banjo neck. This banjo will come to you in like new condition, ready to play.

$1000.00 With original hard case
