One of my most popular style banjos is the Bottle gourd 5 string fretted. Always an attention-getter, these guys produce a fantastic sound incorporating 2 skins and 2 sound ports. This one has a Stitcher peghead, a black walnut neck, and a handmade bridge. The bottle Gourdie will be a great addition to your banjo collection.
