Beautiful banjo custom build for Bart in Florida. I will miss the email volleys as we collaborated on the banjo attributes and final design. A benefit to making custom banjos - customer interaction and friendship building:

"A" scale banjo

Bolivian Rosewood Fretboard (scooped) and Peghead Plate - Beautiful

Walnut neck (funky grained and curly), with bolivian rosewood center

11-inch Block Maple rim with Rolled Brass tone ring and BR rim cap

Curly maple dowel stick

Walnut armrest with turquoise shell - Beautiful (piece of gnarly walnut with grain separation near a knot made into a perfect match to the banjo)

Custom inlay designed by Bart.... Simple yet unique/tasteful - One of a kind.

Extras added by Bart - Brass hooks/brackets, grooved tension hoop, Raw Brass Gotoh tuners, gold frets. Small but mighty, great cutting tone for an Open Back......

Bart has sent a nice movie with his new friend...... Check it out - Click Here
