12 Inch Open-Back Banjo – Custom
This is a 12″ Custom open-back banjo with a rolled brass tone ring, and a steam bent walnut rim with tiger maple veneer. The neck is an incredibly figured tiger maple with walnut pin striping down the center. This banjo is the very first one I’ve made with a paddle head style headstock. A star is inlaid into ebony headstock faceplate. Fretboard is a 25.5″ scale ebony with abalone star and abalone dots on 12th fret. All other dots are mother of pearl.
This banjo has a unique coloration scheme. It’s very antiqued looking with a slight greenish undertone. This creates a really cool effect. This video was taken by cell phone with no special microphone. It really projects! Deep bass and punchy notes.
