• Jim Mills Prewar Gibson Seminar

    Durham, N.C. - The fall 2016 Jim Mills Prewar Gibson Seminar is open for registration. The event, which will take place for one day only on October 15, 2016, is hosted by six-time Grammy Award Winner and IBMA Banjo Player of the Year, Jim Mills.

    The seminar provides a rare, up close and in depth study of the Prewar Gibson Mastertone Banjo. Attendees enjoy a "hands on" experience that is held in Jim's own "Banjo Showroom," where he houses the largest personally owned collection of Original Prewar Flathead Five-String Mastertones ever assembled.

    It offers an extraordinary opportunity to see, discuss, experience, touch, and even play some of the rarest banjos in existence including the "Mack Crow" Gold Plated RB-75, the "Snuffy Jenkins" RB-4, the "Bill Worrell" RB-75, the "African Queen" RB-3, plus other rare flathead banjos, some of which are featured in Jim's book Gibson Mastertone Flathead 5-String Banjos of the 1930's and 1940's.

    Also presented is one of the most fascinating collections of banjo memorabilia, including rare parts, original catalogs, photographs and even items from the Flatt and Scruggs era that helped make bluegrass what it is today.

    The seminar is limited to only 15 seats, so reserve your slot today.
