Gibson historian Walter Carter kindly took this photo of me at Gruhn Guitars with the "Davis Brown" banjo, an all-original 1941 Gibson RB-75, serial #F906-2. Didn't mean to look so grim.

You do look a bit grim. Sorry that one got away.

anyone else holding that banjo would have a BIG grin on their face....that must feel strange to know how close you got to owning that one....and who knows, the fat lady has yet to sing on that one!!!

I actually was smiling "on the inside". . . I always feel like I like goofy in pictures when I smile too big so I try not to. . . then you get what you see here!

I think it's cool that the neck has a little hang tag, just like all the other banjos, but on this one, hand-written with a 39 cent ball point pen is " $150,000.00 "
