Well I finally bit the bullit and purchased my dream banjo. kenny Ingram found this banjo for me at Gruhn's and told me about it so I checked it out and was very interested. Timmy Nixon called Gruhn's for me and was told it was an original 1932 five string RB1 with the original neck that has had some repairs done to it. She has a Huber tone ring installed. This is the rare coke bottle head stock banjo and the S/N is 9468-2. I had the Banjo sent from Gruhn's to John Bouldings shop for a makeover. John put the banjo togeather and came in the chatroom and played it for everyone and I was in shock as to how good this banjo sounds. I will be getting the banjo next week and can hardly wait for it to come. I just wanted to thank Kenny and Timmy and John for all the help in getting my prewar banjo. I will post some pictures when I get the banjo.
