VINTAGE GIBSON ALL ORIGINAL 1934 RB11 This is a very special banjo in large part because of the no hole flathead tonering that "may" be a pre-war ring.
About 20 years ago Mark Taylor, (son of the legendary Dobro player, Tut Taylor, and partner in the Rich and Taylor banjo company and later guitar company Crafters of Tennessee) listed this tone ring on eBay and I won the auction. It came with a metallurgic analysis comparing it to 25 other prewar tone rings. I will find it and post it. Anyway, there is no way of definitively determining whether this is an actual prewar Gibson Tone Ring. I had Renee Karnes install the ring in this banjo and set it up to perfection. It sounds as good or better than SR's original five string flathead in Berkeley and that's a great one. HSC
