GUEST,Lynn Koch Stewart Banjo Fans: eBay Alert (164* d) RE: Stewart Banjo Fans: E-Bay Alert 24 Feb 02


I have a tenor banjo which I purchased second hand at a local dealer (Ithaca Guitar Works). It's not pretty by any means...no inlay, and even the name on the headstock is painted on. It's a Kalamazoo, which I understand (correct me if I'm wrong) is a war-time Gibson made from less than ideal woods. The curious thing about it, though, is that the bridge has SS Stewart stamped on the side. It's possible that the bridge was scarfed from a defunct banjo, though it appears too that Gibson did indeed make some banjos for SS Stewart. The head is natural hide, too, so that's gotta date it back a bit, doesn't it? Any clues here, folks???
