I got the Lane model G in October 2004. This was my Farm & Home Bluegrass Band in early 2005 at the Lenoir County Livestock Arena, home of the original Eastern NC Bluegrass Association.
L-R Bob Gaddis, Shorty Mooring, guitar; Gary Goodwin, bass; Jim Gaddis, mandolin. Jim was in a bluegrass band with the late Al Batten at NC State back in 1966-67.
You once worked on an RB-4 for me and showed me the neck to the Model G as it was disassembled. Hope you have been able to get it repaired, assembled and play it as its a beautiful (and I'm sure a great sounding) banjo.
