  • Description


This is the second Copperhead banjo I’ve made.  The peghead and the frailing scoop have a hammered copper plate that has been chemically treated to produce an antique patina. The Large kettle gourd has a custom dye treatment and a black goat skin head that produces great bass tones. This one is sure to be an attention-getter as well as a great player
