Fairbanks "Curtis Electric"

Named "Curtis" after Fairbanks's son, this now rare modified version was produced a year or so after the introduction of the seminal Fairbanks Electric. Instead of having the scalloped support under the tone ring, it has a series of vertical posts that are reminiscent of similar banjos made slightly later by Lyon and Healy.
