I emailed Vin Mondello (www.4stringbanjos.com) to see if he had any info regarding OB Strombergs - he said mine would be one of the early Strombergs circa 1910-1920. It was common for Vega necks/parts to turn up on them because both Chas. & Elmer Stromberg worked for Vega before setting up their own shop, which explains the Vega-ish peghead on mine. I love this banjo - and to think I NEARLY didn't pick it up to try out because it was an open back! Not that I had a dislike of OB banjos or anything, just never considered one is all.
