One I've wanted to learn -- thanks for reminding me with this fine version. I see the Gretsch company is 130 years old. So you have an old banjo, but you're not sure what brand?

Hi Janet - thanks for the kind words. This is a banjo I just set up. It has no markings, but the peghead & construction looks like Gretsch, probably circa 1930 - 1940. It has a Little Wonder style tone ring. I started numbering the instruments that I restore, and this is #115.
