all know, Gibson maintained nearly no records during its war
years. No production numbers. No serial numbers. No construction
custom order records. And the FON "system", the Gibson factory order
numbers, is particularly beguiling. FONs are often not sequential and
also apparently re-used some of them. Our gain is that this registry
all to sort out the Banner era Gibsons. Eventually it will function as
searchable data base of historical and technical information.
you're willing to help us with this registry project, please email
Willi at willi at j-35.com with pics and information
about your banner Gibson. In addition we'd
like to post full front and back pics and also pics showing the tuners,
neck block and unique features if possible.
