GUEST,Songster Bob Tracing a Banjo (19) RE: Tracing a Banjo 21 Sep 04


A.C. Fairbanks banjo from 1970? Really? Did someone revive the name? AC Fairbanks of Boston was the forerunner of the Vega Co. (actually, a competitor till a fire in 1905(?) led to Vega taking over the Fairbanks Co.), so if it's a real Faibanks, it wasn't a junker, but was instead an heirloom.

Unless, like I said, someone revived the name for a modern instrument company. I haven't followed companies that much (though in 1970 I was doing so, and don't remember that company as being contemporary).
