I recently purchased a Gold Tone banjo (which I asked about in an earlier post). I'm trying to figure out which GT banjo this is, but on their website almost all of the resonator banjos look alike. How can I tell exactly which one mine is (to know how good/bad of a deal I got)?

Btw, my profile picture is the banjo in question.

If you pull the resonator off, you will probably find a label on the inside of the rim. If not there, my old eyes aren't good enough to see much detail in your profile picture, so close up (and more) pictures would help.

When you get to a number, I found this out about my banjo and it might help you:
"In an email discussion with Wayne Rogers (founder/owner of Gold Tone) in May 2017, I found out that the serial number 2160 2367 can be decoded this way: 216 (year = 2016) 0 2 (month = February) 367 (the sequential number of the banjo made that month)."
