I haven't seen many 1925 tb 2 conversions
I thought it would be neat to convert one to use to learn clawhammer and oldtime styles.
I found an old Harmony A scale neck that worked out nicely.
I'm real happy with the set up,
It plays like butter and I am real happy with the sound.
Cool banjo

Good work on that one!

I think that might be the first Gibson “Ribbon” style 2 that I have seen made into a five string banjo and that still kept the original “Ribbon” flange.

Nice work and well done. Instrument has a nice clean sound to it.

Curious about the rim size on that. 11 or 10.5"? I was under the impression that most things you see with the wavy flange were 10.5" , but nothing is absolute with Gibson.

Hey Eric
This one is 10.5
I'm under the impression that later years the style 2 went to 11",if I'm not mistaken.

My ‘26 two is 11” and had the diamond flange originally.
It’s a great sounding bluegrass banjo with the 1/2” hoop tone ring.
