Victor Furtado played this banjo when he won the banjo competition at Clifftop in 2015!
Great sounding wood tonering and beautiful walnut and birsdeye maple... Some nice inlays, too!
Beautiful 11" walnut and birdseye maple lightweight banjo! My lovely wife, Judy and I play John Salyer's Trouble On My Mind.
Another custom banjo order. This one is a 12" walnut fretless with a sasquatch theme! It's a a beast.
This was a custom banjo special ordered with a brook trout inlay in the headstock. It is a walnut and birdseye maple white laydie. Here I am playing a tune called Firefly written by Jim Childress. Don't hate me because I'm well dressed!
Banjo SN 0015
This is the first White Laydie banjo I've made in a while. I love the growl and sustain of that tone ring. You can see detailed pictures of this banjo on the Gallery page and hear me playing a great Mississippi tune called Going up to Hamburg below.
Banjo SN 0011
I recently completed another lightweight banjo model. This one is constructed of curly maple and cherry and has a turned flange for the hooks and also a turned tone ring. The sound is beautiful! Detailed pictures are available from the Gallery page. Hear Frank Lee accompany Judy Robinson on Old Joe Bone with this banjo below.
Hear the Last of Harris on SN 0011 below.
Lightweight Banjo SN 0009
My new favorite banjo is a beautiful walnut and cherry model with a turned wooden tonering. The pot has a ledge turned into it to replace the normal "L" shoes and keep the weight down. The neck and pot are held together by an ebony wedge. The banjo has beautiful inlays inspired by my love of hunting. There are detailed pictures on the Gallery page. See and hear it on You Tube below!
