Description

The Naked banjo Series are Gourdies made primarily of one wood. In this case, Curly maple is used throughout the wood part of the banjo … neck, fretboard, or fingerboard. I try to pick the best grains and color for these banjos to result in a very striking instrument. This particular gourd is kind of funky with a flat spot on the bottom. I like em that way!
