A previous thread: asked the question of people with Luscomb banjos to post a photo of the serial number and I just wanted to share the banjo I've been repairing. My banjo is an 1888 patent. I found it in Seattle. The neck was broken off at the dowel stick. The hooks were a mix of 3 different kinds, It was missing 8 of the original shoes and the neck brace. Someone put vintage Grover open gear (guitar style) tuners on it etc.etc. It now has a full set of shoes although I'm still looking for a doze original shoes. Its got a full compliment of the same hooks but not the correct hooks so I'm still looking for them. I made my own neck brace that looks similar to the original. I repaired the broken neck and replaced the messed up nut. It has a way to go but it's playable again and I played it extensively at our yearly Thanksgiving Hoot. If anyone has a line on any of the original parts I would love to know about them. Here's the serial number. If anyone knows anything about this banjo based on the number I would surely love to know that as well.
