A very clean bluegrass banjo based on the style of Gibson's "budget brand" banjos of the 1930s. However the construction of this recent import is closer to the real Mastertone Gibson models, with a thick three-ply maple rim and bell-brass flathead tone ring. As you can tell by the lack of fret wear this example hasn't seen much use, it's a bargain compared to what a new one would cost.
