Please help with a picture of the logo "Boomerang" on a British? 1940 long neck banjo which is having the wooded end of the neck being repaired and only the last half of the word is present. A laser machine can then etch over a thin cover after the wood repair is done. Anything like the orig. might do. Urgent please.and thanks.

Post the picture directly to the forum. It will come out bigger and you will get good responses from the Banjo Hangout braintrust. I, for one, loose interest when I have to go hunting for pictures.

I agree - post a picture with the partial word. Someone may recognize the font/typeface that is used. If so, then you might be able to find that in a word processing program (or some other resource).

Here is an old thread asking about a Boomerang banjo.  You might message the original poster "Wilso" and see if he/she can send a picture of the headstock with the whole word.

Thankyou "Thisoldman" re that old post but it revealed nothing.

Thankyou so much to Beegee Bob for the picture. I tried to modify it with "picture manager' so it could be used in a laser engraver but the file image is so small as it is.
Could we be so lucky for a much closer picture of just the Boomerang please? for a much larger file size.
There is a joint effort happening locally here in Aus. to restore this sentimental banjo for a young lady who is just finishing her 12 months of rehab. She will be amazed some help even came from U.S.A.
There are only 4 days left to complete it.
Thanks in anticipation. Frango
