At my jam this week, I ran into a long time friend who I consider a fine Banjo maker, and player. I was showing him my RB-250 (2002 Gibson), he was telling me that it was possible that Sullivan assembled or made various portions of the Jo. Seems after or before the "Flood" the Gibson Co. was slowing down production. While I know Sullivan as a first rate Banjo maker, I was not aware of this.
Can anyone tell me the history of the Sullivan relationship with Gibson.
Please take it easy on me if this some well known fact, I just wanted to know
