From early 1927 to late 1940 a Miss Elizabeth Buchanan of 6 Granville St. West, GLASGOW, C.3. advertised herself as a teacher of the Banjo, Tenor-banjo, Mandolin, Guitar and Ukulele and, for a period, her advertisements included "instruments repaired on the premises".

 

A display advertisement in the April 1928 issue of "B.M.G." proclaimed:- BUCHANAN BANJOS Makers and repairers of all fretted instruments.

 

Models included  a highly decorated short scale 6 string with slotted peg head and with an all metal pot vented at the side.
