March 21, 2017--The banjo family as envisioned by Gibson before World War II included the guitar-banjo; GB-1 #8540-5 is one such instrument dating to 1926.

March 4, 2017--TB-3 Mastertone #9259-5 was owned for many years by Oxford, Mississippi resident "Thousand Fingers" Smith, who acquired it as a teenager in the late 1930s.

January 18, 2017--I have uploaded the Gibson banjo shipping totals for August 1942.  The factory began its war work in earnest this month (more about that soon), but still shipped thirteen banjos including one RB-75 and a new-old-stock TB-6.

January 16, 2017--Welcome to our nineteenth year!  To start off 2017 we have TB-3 Mastertone #8161-28, which dates to late 1925 and features a very unusual peghead logo.
