I have a pre-war armrest which has slightly wider spacing on the clamp than will fit a standard 24-hook Gibson. I am pretty sure that it came off of a 22-hook rim, but I no longer have one of these banjos to be sure. So, does anyone know the distance between hooks (and therefore between the mounting grooves on the clamp) on a 22-hook 11” rim? Also, any idea of the worth of such an armrest? Thanks for any info.

I own a 1926 Tb1 conversion with an original shoe bracket and tone hoop pot. The center of the hooks at the shoe are 1&9/16 inch apart. I hope this helps. I am not sure of the value but if you come up with a number, message me because I could use one.

Thanks, Chip. Will do.
