A while ago , I was in the process of building a donated banjo/ guitar for a local guy here that helps with delivering prescriptions , groceries , etc for folks that are unable to, He does this on his own time . and even occasionally buys them coffee etc.. out of pocket , and takes no payments . Well , due to a shipping snafu , my parts I ordered all went missing . And this left the project in limbo .
That’s when Ben at C.B GITTY stepped in , and offered up his new country roads banjo kit . This was perfect . it arrived quick and safe and sound . and is actually a lot more solid and sturdy then I expected . In fact , way more sturdy than most cigar box guitars I have seen . I was pretty impressed . The neck channel really holds things in tight. Truly an awesome kit ,, easy to follow instructions and great bang for the buck . Has a great booming banjo sound too !!!!
As you can see, I put my own design flare on it , I added cut up pieces of a drip pan to accent the f holes . gave it a cool stain and ammo case theme and added his initial on the headstock .
I Met the guy this morning , and surprised him with the banjo , ………..He was almost in tears . ( and he is a big guy ) . It really was awesome .
Special thanks to Ben for stepping in and making this possible . (and an extended thanks from the banjo owner to Ben. (who I give all the credit for this one )
