I saw a picture of a Van Eps banjo in need of repair that appeared on your site in 2019.
I recognise this specifjc banjo and have photographs of FVE playing it. It has obviously been severely neglected. It is one of a pair removed from the home of Robert Van Eps by his brother, George Van Eps.
The last time l spoke to George he confirmed that he still had the instruments.
Where are these banjos now? Would they be for sale?
As a Van Eps fan, l am anxious about the ultimate fate of these important instruments. Any information would be welcome. patjdoyle@btinternet.com

I can't help you locate this banjo, but I may have located the discussion in 2019 you mentioned.
