  • Description


This banjo has some crazy Curly Maple for a neck….lots of flame with Gloss Lacquer finish. The Bottle gourd is 12″ length x 6 1/2″ deep x 9 at the widest point This thing pushes a lot of air through the 2 soundposts. Yea, but how do you hold it to play. It comes with a free strap strategically located in a mystery spot so it lays nicely against the body.
