Washburn/Lyon&Healey Banjolele
« on: October 03, 2009, 11:23:19 PM »
Another eBay find... I believe it's in the teen range, maybe 20's - Haven't been able to track down the serial number(s) - on the brace Washburn and Gilbert - 5375 and 6202 - on the inside of the Pot 1187. This one is built like a banjo with 12 hold downs and MOP inlay on the neck (Dots) and tuner head. If anyone has a clue about the numbers on these early instruments, I'd appreciate the input...
I did find a picture of a 1935 - the only thing I saw different was the inlay was a little fancier on the '35 and the tuner knobs looks like brown plastic(?)
