As best I can tell, this is mostly but perhaps not all Gibson. Picked it up a couple of years back at a shop in Austin Tx. Set up by Rolf Sieker out of Austin, who sat with me personally and installed the tailpiece (not Gibson) and the sliding capo.
Great sounding old banjo, a real player's banjo! 20 hole ring added...
Are we supposed to be seeing it?
I hope so, by now...sorry. 3 kids, cooking out tonight, and I always post the ad then add pics later. I even had more narrative on my history with the banjo, and lost it all switching pages on the phone...haven't gotten back around to re-writing everything.
Thanks for mentioning...
