 I'm sorry, but if you click on this and scroll down just a bit, you will see the the Beatles are all over the Boxes. http://www.eskimo.com/~bpentium/beatles/bongos.html - The last picture you sent, does have the Beatles image on the headstock like mine and the neck looks brownish red, not a good pic of the banjo. You can hardly make out the pic. of them on the headstock. And if you look at my first picture in this post, you will see that my lighting wasn't good either. You can't even tell that my banjo is red until I turned it sideways in my 3rd or forth picture. compare that last picture you posted with my first and second one. That banjo you just posted is red.

I cleaned her up and she looks great. I'm going to try to post a pic. if it works I'll add more. I'm pretty sure I'll be listing it on E-BAY in the next couple of days.

OK, IT WORKED. As you may know, I got this 1964 Mastro Beatles banjo and it has a small chip in the back plate, so I bought a regular Mastro banjo and had the backplate painted at the car body shop. When I sell my banjo, I'm going to include the regular Mastro banjo because all the gold trim and the newly painted back plate are an EXACT same part and if someone drops the original Beatles banjo and breaks the gold trim, you can swap it out for the spare part in less than 5 min. also If they want a perfect backplate instead of the chipped original, that takes 1 min. to swap. It snaps on and off exactly like a tupperware container lid. Here are some pics. 1st is a poor pic. of both banjos. The lighting isn't the best.

this is the regular Mastro banjo that I'm going to include for spare parts. All the trim is EXACTLY the SAME.

next is the original chipped backplate and the newly painted one from the regular banjo.

this is the Beatles banjo with the chipped back.

this is the Banjo with the newly painted backplate on it.

again, pic with me pointing to chip on original backplate.

this is the newly painted backplate.

this is a small ding that isn't visible when the bridge is in place, I found it when I took it apart for cleaning.

this is the face after cleaning

this is the headstock after cleaning.

it looks great B....someone will be very happy.....i don't think that anyone would be sure that back plates was changed....
repair work with original parts can't be termed repair can they?just putting it back to original...
you might get a lower price if you included all that history of the rope,gum and back plate...you don't have to disclose everything..it's not lying...
good luck with the auction...i hope you make a million on it..lol set a reserve tho...that way you can get what you want...

Thanks alot, I just listed it a few min. ago. I feel bad because some really nice guy from CA. contacted me and offered my fiance $2,500.00 for it. He wanted it real bad. I explained that money was real tight for us and I had to take a chance to see what I could get for it. I told him I wouldn't list it if he offered $3,000.00 but he couldn't do it. He's a real collector and sent a pic of his super nice collection. If we weren't so broke, Deb would have sold it to him.

Sorry, but two threads about your Beatles banjo is one too many. And seeing as I just had to delete the same thread from 3 other forums here, don't expect my tolerance to be high.

Of course, the smart thing would be to post a link to the auction on ebay. :-/

This is and old post and nobody is going to read it again. Why is it that other people have posted about Beatles things for sale on E-Bay and I can't. My topic is not the same. Can't you at least let me list it in the selling forum? Isn't that what it's for??

To be perfectly honest, you've been posting about your banjo for a while, and really only got one person interested in it. I don't think another thread is going to help.

As a warning to you, if you post another thread about it, I will delete it. One is enough. I've spent enough time tonight on your threads.

Marshall, with respect, you weren't online last night when this guy wasted a hour of my time. First of all his way of telling us that he'd put it on ebay was to start 4 identical threads in 4 different forums. I deleted 3 of them, and merged the other one with this thread. Fair enough? I couldn't see the need for a separate thread for his auction. This one has been going for a month, and so far has attracted only your interest. I thought that 2 threads about one man's Beatles banjo was one too many, when he's clearly only on here to sell it, and not interested in the rest of the forums.

I explain this to him, he starts another thread complaining about it. He sends me a PM complaining about it. I explain to him again, and ask him not to do it. He throws his toys out of the pram and gets insulting. The End.

Of course Bobber and I, and the rest could always stop moderating for a couple of weeks and watch the forum degenerate into chaos. Your choice.

I forgive your 'butting in', he's welcome to post his ebay auction on this thread, without getting insulting. He's correct when he says there's only 2 rules for posting. But as I pointed out to him, there's also common sense. And one of the rules is: no personal insults.

Anyone else having problems with the way these boards are adminned and modded? Oh, wait, I know someone.  We're kind whenever we can, because we ARE kind. I personally don't feel I'm rednecking in here, but if I am, so be it. I will have another look at my soft side tho. I'll give the kids an extra hug tonight. Now, are you behaving like a Sun King?  :)
