The Fender Co. of Santa Ana California did not make any banjos until the latter part of 1965 when they acquired the plant and manufacturing rights of Gariepy Banjos, a firm which had been conducted by the banjo maker Art Gariepy of Long Beach Cal.
“Fender” banjos are well made showing the craftsmanship of their former maker.
Do you have a pre 1940's banjo by this maker? can you supply us some images?
