This Banjo is “Irma” why….you ask..because it was finished while the leftover of Hurricane Irma was passing over my shop.
This Banjo has a Large kettle Gourd 91/2″ dia x 5 1/2″ deep meaning that it has a more reverberant tone. Lots of air. I suggest a strap
on this one..see accessories so it won’ have a tendency to roll. I’m not sure what the wood is on the peghead , I think it’s Rosewood with
sapwood mixed in..beautiful.
