Just wondering- anyone else have information or opinions on variances among Gibson prewar 00's, as to number of inlaid dots and their placement? I didn't even notice mine had more dots than others of the same model, until inquiry by another member. I guess the more dots the better- except I still tend to mess up up the neck, because their arrangement is different than on my other banjo.Add Comment

Took 3 lessons as a 15 yr-old...been pluckin' around ever since, listening to records, then tapes, CDs, etc. to pick things out. Some tab. Very picky on what I want to listen to- prefer what I call hard-drivin' bluegrass, prefer bands such as those I've listed above. At festivals, I prefer to hear paid performers over jamming. I enjoy playing, but I work hard at another profession and I really enjoy listening to bluegrass, as well as playing it. Currently play a Gibson parts banjo.
