This is a one-of-a-kind custom banjo, from one of the country’s most respected luthiers, based in Appomattox, Virginia.

I love this banjo for picking on the couch– it won’t put your back out, picking it up and putting it down, or crush your cat or your sweetheart. It’s lightweight, and with a custom-size head. But it packs beautiful full tone, not the tinny nasal sound from most open back banjos.

It’s five or so years old, but with very little wear.
