Gibson Longneck Banjo Circa 1930 Kalamazoo, Michigan

Claims to fame: played in Hair at the Aquarius Theater on Sunset Boulevard Los Angeles in the late ’60s. Also, used to record with the Los Angels Philharmonic Orchestra.

While my dad was recording in 1965 at TPG Studios his van was broken into and this instrument was stolen. Within a month the police tracked it down to a pawn shop, where my dad promptly bought it back for $25.00.
