This 5-string banjo is hand built from scratch, no recycled parts, or materials.
It has a wood top of thin cedar; the cross braces are of Sitka spruce. For the pot and the neck, I used Yellow Walnut and New Guinee Rosewood laminations. The fingerboard is Jarrah, and the truss rod cover is Ivory. Decorative embellishments are yellow Walnut with Ebony inlay and mother of pearl. A custom maple bridge, Burdiken Plum armrest, and tailpiece along with regular Gotoh geared tuners finish off this build. It has a nice warm tone the highs are bright but not glass shattering.
