I just picked up a 2000 Gibson ESS. Basically been sitting in the case for years and is in excellent condition minus some tarnish on the metal parts and some of the frosting starting to peel off around the edge of the head where it lays over the tone ring. Want to replace the head but not sure which is the standard, defacto model of Remo Weatherking because it looks like there's at least three different versions; BJ1100-H1, BJ1100-M1, BJ1100-L1.

This is high crown, medium crown or low crown. For your banjo, you can have either medium or high crown. I like medium crown better, which makes the tension hoop sit a bit higher. I like that look better.
