Thread Name: Why Musicians Put Their Name on Instrument?
Subject: RE: Why Musicians Put Their Name on Instrument?
Famous banjo player and maker from the thirties, Emile Grimshaw, usually had his name somewhere on instruments. I have one of his banjos (sadly in bits at the moment) which has his initials in mother of pearl on the headstock as well as similar down the neck. It also has his signature on the velum.
