Identical to “ For Sale or Trade: 1940 Prewar Gibson OPF 955 // Original 5 String!” ad in BHO classifieds?
actually it is the same banjo
I think I saw the same banjo on ebay also.
The 'Hang-outer, crowfielder, did a running thread, with photos, on this banjo, from when he bought it in total dis-repair, to rehabbing it into a playable, and sellable, condition
Indeed, guilty on all counts. I’ve posted it silly. Sorry if all the radar blips get confusing, just looking for a buyer as I mosey through Oregon. I’ve got a couple sets of pictures for it but the FON will be a giveaway. It’ll be in Southern Oregon next, likely for a while.
