I recently purchased a tb1 virtually identical to this one on eBay. Mine also has this style armrest. Are these style armrests Gibson or after market? Also, on these lower end models, were armrests "standard"?

Hi Slinger,...welcome to the H O.........the ' standard' arm rest's for Gibson style banjos really did'nt fit the style -1's and -2's , due to different spacing on the J- hooks............ on my -2, I modified the arm rest 'T' clamp, so it would fit...........I have seen where the arm rest was silver soldered to the J-hooks.......I guess you do what it takes to make it work...peace
