|Comments||Here’s a 1966 Gibson RB100 banjo. Shaded finish was “blown in” around the heel, and clearly this is to hide a repaired heel crack. The finish work appears to be at least 30 years old so clearly the repair, what ever was done, was sound and well done.
This banjo has an incredible amount of honest wear and tear. I’m sure it would have a few stories to tell !
