Banner J45 w 55 Pickguard?


Recommended Posts

This 1942 Banner J45 has a pickguard on it described as unique to the J55. Is this possible? Or perhaps it was an option? How likely is it that for whatever reason, this might be a replacement? If you ever get to the Bluegrass festival in Telluride, Colorado - this shop is a must see.

It's difficult to tell from the pics but my best gues is that it is original: it looks to be under the original finish (as would have been customary).


That pick guard graced both the J-55 and the SJ-100:




That J-45 , though, looks more like a 1943 model.
