1933 RB-1 "Sydney"

Like its littermates, this rare 5-string Style 1 has the "coke bottle" headstock shape.  It also has a Mastertone Decal in the rim.  This banjo was originally exported to Australia, and bears the "Made-in-USA" stamp and sticker.    It also has an old train luggage sticker inside the case... giving support to the name already bestowed by it's new owner back in the USA.
