Description

Banjo #394 is a combination of the popular Irma models combined with a southwestern flair of turquoise and sterling silver.his is the real deal. The turquoise was cut from a rough stone by myself then wrapped with serrated sterling silver much like native American jewelry. This one also sports a huge Kettle gourd for big, deep reverberant tones.
