Banjo Disaster

Sunday, March 13, 2011

A horrible thing happened to my Gibson RB 250 today.

The banjo was parked safely in a stand when I went to pick it up I noticed the neck was broken just South of the nut. It seems the peghead is hanging on by just the veneer.

A little background on this. Way back in 1984 the banjo fell off a stand and the neck broke in the same place. It was professionally repaired and all has been well since.

Anyone have any advice or suggestions. I posted some photos also.
