  • Description


This is one of the most popular banjos I make. Everything about it rough…except the playing area of the neck which has a smooth oil finish. The fencepost banjo gets its name from the original, which actually used part of a fencepost for the head plate. Barnwood and old boards are now used as faceplates. All the detail of a great sounding banjo is still incorporated in this instrument. It’s a sure attention getter at any gathering.
