  • Description


The All New Greenman is back in stock. One of the most popular gourdies I make. The Greenman is hand-carved and colored and it’s one of a kind. It has a large kettle gourd with a 2 3/8″ soundport which means he’s a loud talker. The gourd has been dyed olive green to match this fellow. He’s sure to be an attention grabber as well as a standout in any old-time jam.
