Here is a VERY rare pre war Gibson Top Tension Wrist Mute.

Those that know me are aware that I have owned two 1937 Pre War Top Tension banjos. One was FON # 390-13 (shown on the Earnest Pre War banjos website) and the other was FON # 390-9.

Anyway after I purchased my 390-9 I went on a long extended 2 year plus hunt for an original wrist Mute. They are very rare and nearly impossible to find. I finally located one and purchased it for 390-9.

This Wrist Mute is chrome plated so it could have been off a style 12 Banjo but who knows.

It is all original and in excellent condition. The only thing I added was a piece of cork that you can see in the pictures to Mute the bridge.

This Wrist Mute is shown on the Earnest Website on my Top Tension TB-7 Banjo 390-9.

I have sold off all of my vintage banjos (kids going to university now) so I thought I would list this rare piece now.

Please feel free to contact me with any further questions.

Thanks kindly
