Andy, My Gibson RB-250

Andy began making music in 1954. He rolled out of the Gibson factory pretty close to the same time as the Banjo Earl Scruggs used to play The Ballad of Jed Clampett (better known as “The Beverly Hillbillies Theme song”). The archtop pot, hardwood and tone ring give Andy a particularly distinct and unmistakable tone – and VOLUME unmistakable among Banjos.
Here are a few of my favorite times pickin‘ and grinnin‘ onstage with friends.
If you’re ever in Charleston and wanna pick know I’m easily coerced into an afternoon by the waters edge filled with the sound of bluegrass!
