  • Description


By far one of my best sellers and the most fun to make. The original Fencepost post came about while I was on my mother in laws farm where I found an old fencepost laying in the field. I took the post home and took a slice of the weathered wood and stuck it on the peghead and the rest is history. The only smooth part of this banjo is the playing area of the neck. The rest is rustic. The gourd is left as it comes from the field except for knocking off the loose debris. Great player and conversation piece
