Serial, or what, Number?


Recommended Posts

There are a bunch of "banjophile" websites out there, just like the guitar sites. Older Gibson banjo numbers are pretty well documented.

 

Here's one site that shows the 4-2522 number to be from 1954, although the "157" is not specifically listed.

Further internet research should yield all the answers you're looking for.
