This bicentennial banjo was made in Nashville, Tennessee in 1975 by the legendary "Tut" Taylor and his Tut Taylor Music Company.  Robert "Tut"  Taylor was a huge part of Nashville, Tennessee's Americana and Bluegrass history as a world-renowned dobro player who used a distinctive flat-picking style in his playing.  In 1975, the Tut Taylor Music Company was licensed by the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration to manufacture these handmade commemorative 5-string banjos.  These instruments were available in both finished and kit form and were marketed throughout the country in honor of the Bicentennial Celebration.
