Nicely aged 1967 Gibson Mastertone 4-string banjo – a fine example of Gibson’s Mastertone line.

The Mastertone banjo series traces its roots back to the 1920s when Gibson introduced these instruments, quickly becoming a favorite among professional musicians and enthusiasts alike. Known for their powerful projection and clarity, Mastertone banjos have left an indelible mark on American music, particularly in bluegrass and folk genres.
