Albert Shutt (1877-1963) was a musician and instrument designer from Topeka, Kansas who introduced many innovative ideas for guitar, mandolin, banjo, and harp-guitar. After his patents expired anyone, including Gibson, was free to employ the design features in their instruments especially his mandolin inovations. His unique instrument inventions and designs – which were in many ways precursors to or improvements on Gibson instruments – never had a chance of catching up with the more famous company’s popularity.

Among his inventions were his "Bell Metal Banjos" and a resonator for the banjo, a wooden crown shaped piece that was installed between the banjo head and the back of the resonator. (See 1926 United States Patent US#1568248 for wooden banjo resonator);
