4 minstrel banjos to be finished in 2019
Here are the four that didnt get completed. First is a left handed short scale with bone frets heading to the Isle of White.
A single ply oak rim with short (24") scale neck. The custom headstock is based on an ancient chinese mythical bird carving with bottom mounted bracket shoes.
Next is a group of three tackhead grainmeasure banjos that ive been working on for fun and will be for sale in early 2019. They are all short scale (21") with similar necks. Flush frets, vertical fifth tuning peg and will be stained darker to compliment the pots. The pots are all antique wooden sieves, 3 different sizes and 3 different woods... all with unique tones.
